Anatomy Of A Fall star Sandra Huller will appear opposite Ryan Gosling, in the soon to shoot Project Hail Mary.

It was revealed earlier this month that Ryan Gosling’s next film would be Project Hail Mary, an Amazon MGM-backed project that is set to begin shooting in London next month.

The talent behind this makes it a rather appealing project to follow, not least because it boasts a Drew Goddard script and the directing duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The film is also based on the novel by Andy Weir, whose novel The Martian was also adapted for the screen by Goddard. Then there’s the Gosling factor too, given that the actor’s popularity seems to be riding rather high at the moment.

If that wasn’t enough, it’s now been revealed that Sandra Hüller has joined the cast too.

Hüller’s last film, 2023’s Anatomy Of A Fall was critically feted, and her absorbing performance sat squarely at the centre of a film which rightly attracted a great deal of admiration.

Here’s the synopsis for Project Hail Mary:

Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission – and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish.

Except that right now, he doesn’t know that. He can’t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it.

All he knows is that he’s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he’s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company.

His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, Ryland realises that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it’s up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery-and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.

And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light-years away, he’s got to do it all alone.

Or does he?

Or does he indeed?

We’re hoping that last teaser means that Gosling won’t be quite as isolated as the setup suggests. After all, we’ve seen him play the isolated loner many times before and now that Hüller’s casting is confirmed, we’re really looking forward to seeing these two actors share a few scenes together.

Most recently, Hüller was filming Rose, which looks to be smaller independent film with director, Markus Schleinzer. She’s playing the title character in that one before starring opposite Gosling in Project Hail Mary.

The film is being filmed for IMAX and released wide in cinemas on 20th March 2026. If we hear more casting news we’ll let you know before production begins – in the UK! – next month.
