Neil Armstrong made history when he became the first person to walk on the moon, and in playing him, Ryan Gosling may end up making a little awards season history of his own and win his first Academy Award.
For “First Man,” the two-time Oscar-nominated Gosling reteams with his Oscar-winning “La La Land” director Damien Chazelle, depicting the storied astronaut in his conquest of space. The Universal Pictures feature, which will have a prime Oct. 12 release date, is packed with heavy-hitters including Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler, and Corey Stoll. “Spotlight” scribe Josh Singer penned the script.
