    From Variety:

    Jon Hamm is in negotiations to star opposite Natalie Portman in Fox Searchlight’s “Pale Blue Dot,” sources tell Variety.

    “Fargo” and “Legion” creator Noah Hawley is directing from a script by Brian C. Brown and Elliott DiGuiseppi. Reese Witherspoon, who was attached to star at one point, will produce with Bruna Papandrea.

    “Pale Blue Dot” follows a successful female astronaut who, after coming back home from a mission in space, starts to unravel when confronted by her seemingly perfect life. The film explores the theory that astronauts who spend long periods of time in space lose their sense of reality when they return home.

    Hamm will play Portman’s fellow astronaut who she aggressively pursues after returning to Earth.

    With “Legion” wrapped and Hawley’s other FX series, “Fargo,” not shooting until next year, production on “Pale Blue Dot” is expected to start in the spring.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Maybe this’ll be Hamm’s lucky break. He’s one of those guys who we know is going to get an Oscar nomination sometime within the next decade, and we’re splitting hairs over “when” rather than “if.”

    I’m so excited for this. Easily will be one of my most anticipated films of next year (assuming that’s when it’ll come out). Hopefully, it will be Natalie’s next awards vehicle.

    I like the premise, and Portman did great in Annihilation this year–and I’d love to see Hamm break out into more roles (a la The Town) but this just seems too commercial to me.

    Lol if Noah Hawley is involved it’s anything but commercial.
