SXSW: ‘Space Station 76’ Sci-Fi Comedy Acquired By Sony For International Distribution

If you haven’t heard of Space Station 76 yet, this is a film you need to keep an eye on when it finally hits theaters. The film, which has been in production since 2012, finally made its debut at SXSW this weekend, and distribution rights to the film have already been snagged by Sony Pictures for all international markets save for the United States, which will be handled by Preferred Content.

Space Station 76 has great premise, to make a science fiction dramedy in the future, using the mindset of the 1970s (thus the 76) as to what we thought the future would look like. Think Space: 1999, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, or the original Battlestar Galactica to get a feel for this approach – huge clunky robots, wood paneling, white structural backgrounds, and of course 70’s fashion sense.

The film is directed by long-time actor Jack Plotnick, who makes his feature-length debut here. Among the cast that make up the crew and residents of the Omega 76 Space Station are Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer, Jerry O’Connell, Marisa Coughlan, and Kali Rocha.

No release dates have been set for the movie yet, but in the meantime you can check out the Facebook page and website for Space Station 76. Also, check out the great poster below, which further cements the style and atmosphere the movie is trying to mimic.
