In the Oscar-nominated Monster’s Ball screenwriter’s first directing stint, Alba would star as an astronaut who causes a fatal motorcycle accident before heading off on her first space mission.

When she survives the crash of her space shuttle, her guilty conscience drives her to search for her own victim’s family, and she falls in love with his brother, a cop, in the process.

Myriad Pictures’ Kirk D’Amico will produce with Steve Norris, alongside the United Kingdom’s Apollo Productions and its partners, Pinewood Studios and Double Negative.

This year alone, Alba will appear in two sequels: Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And, she’s also one of the voice actors in the 3D animated film Escape from Planet Earth.
