O’Dowd is replacing John Krasinski, who was previously attached to the film. The Bridesmaids star will join David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daniel Bruhl. They will play a team of astronauts on a space station who discover that the Earth has disappeared. When a space shuttle appears they must determine whether it is there to help or harm them.
O’Dowd can be seen next in Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children with Eva Green. He will also lend his voice to the first fully painted animated feature, Loving Vincent. His previous film credits include the Lance Armstrong biopic, The Program, St. Vincent, and Calvary.
