Amid the Oscar buzz of his movie "La La Land", the 36-year-old actor is set to reunite with director Damien Chazelle in the movie called "First Man" about the first astronaut who set foot on the moon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The upcoming feature film is adapted from the book "First Man: A Life of Neil A. Armstrong" by James Hansen. Depicting NASA's space program from 1961 to 1969, it is scripted by Josh Singer, the Oscar-winning co-writer of another true-story movie "Spotlight".
