After Hidden Figures grossed an incredible $195,442,934 against a budget of $25 million in addition to earning three Oscar nominations, it comes as no surprise that Hollywood is planning more fact based dramas. This time it is about humanity's expeditions into space.

Ryan Gosling will be reuniting with La La Land director Damien Chazelle for First Man, a biopic of astronaut Neil Armstrong, who was the first human to set foot on the moon.

Adapted from the nonfiction book First Man: The Life Of Neil A Armstrong by James Hansen, the film will focus on Armstrong's life in the 1960s, when Russia and the USA were both competing in the space race. 

Although it didn't win Best Picture, La La Land still took home an incredible six Academy Awards in addition to earning a gigantic $396,992,395 against a budget of $30 million. So First Man is practically guaranteed to be a hit when Universal release it on 12 October 2018. 

In the meantime, we'll next be seeing Gosling in director Terrence Malick's drama Song to Song, which opens on 17 March 2017.
