An untitled American romantic comedy film is being directed by Greg Berlanti and written by Rose Gilroy. Setting as a 1960s space race film, it stars Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Jim Rash, Ray Romano, and Woody Harrelson.

Previously titled Project Artemis, the film will be released theatrically by Columbia Pictures through Sony Pictures Releasing on July 12, 2024.[1][2]

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

In March 2022, Apple TV+ announced it had acquired the distribution rights to the project, then titled Project Artemis, for $100 million. Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans were also announced as starring in the film, with Jason Bateman directing.[3] In May, Bateman said the working title Project Artemis was likely to change.[4] He left the project the following month, citing creative differences,[5] and was later replaced by Greg Berlanti, his first directorial effort since 2018's Love, Simon.

The search for a new director and Berlanti's availability changed the production schedule, forcing Evans to drop out as well. In July, Channing Tatum entered negotiations to replace him.[6] In September, Jim Rash joined the cast.[7] Ray Romano, Anna Garcia and Woody Harrelson would be added in the following months.[8][9][10]

Filming began on October 27, 2022, in Atlanta, with a casting call issued seeking extras to play NASA employees and FBI agents.[11]

Release[edit]

Following their partnership on Napoleon, Apple entered another agreement with Sony Pictures to distribute the film in theatres in December 2023.[12] That same month, it was scheduled for a theatrical release in the United States on July 12, 2024, with the film no longer titled Project Artemis.[13][1]
