Remember NASA astronaut Lisa Nowak? Maybe you don’t remember her name, but you probably remember her story. Back in February of 2007, she was arrested in Florida with the attempted kidnapping of U.S. Air Force Captain Colleen Shipman, who was dating astronaut William Oefelein.
Nowak didn’t like this because she had a brief fling with Oefelein the year before. After a two year battle in court, Nowak agreed to a plea deal and pleaded guilty to charges of felony burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery.
Now Hollywood is making a movie loosely based on her life. The film, Lucy in the Sky, stars Natalie Portman as a fictionalized version of Nowak.
Check out the official synopsis…
In LUCY IN THE SKY, Natalie Portman plays astronaut Lucy Cola, who returns to Earth after a transcendent experience during a mission to space – and begins to lose touch with reality in a world that now seems too small.
In addition to Portman, this movie also stars Jon Hamm, Dan Stevens and the lovely Zazie Beetz.
It’s expected to hit theaters later this year…
