sagancollectionLegendary astrophysicist Carl Sagan will be remembered in the upcoming biographical drama from Warner Bros. and will produce for Warner, while and will oversee for their shingle, Lynda Obst Productions. , Sagan’s widow, will also serve as a producer on the film. Deadfall scribe is scripting.

The beloved scientist and author is perhaps best known as the host of the award-winning 1980’s television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, a show which many credit as having introduced the exploration of the universe into popular culture. A favorite guest of Johnny Carson’s, Sagan was known as a strong advocate of SETI–the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence–and spent much of his researching the possibility of life on other planets.

Sagan also wrote the novel Contact, which was adapted for the big screen in 1997 by Robert Zemeckis. That film, which starred Jodie Foster and Matthew McCoughnehey, was also co-produced by Sagan, Druyan and Obst for Warner. Contact was well-received by both critics and audiences, earning Foster a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress.

The Sagan biopic has an impressive team of producers behind it, starting with Valenti, who was involved with this summer’s endlessly kinetic Mad Max: Fury Road. Obst, meanwhile, helped lead Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar to galactic-sized numbers at the box office last year. Perhaps the most important element, however, is Druyan, whose involvement is bound to give the film the credibility it needs to stand up to the scrutiny of skeptical Sagan loyalists.

  17. An extraordinary man requires an extraordinary biopic. Please don’t mess this up. Please don’t fictionalize or magnify any perceived blemishes for the sake of drama. Save it for the fiction we see everywhere else. Dr. Sagan introduced me to science at a young age and has given me a lifetime of inquiry and enjoyment. As others will agree, it almost makes me NOT want to see it, not wanting to ruin the memory of the man.
