EUROPA REPORT is an upcoming science fiction film starring Sharlto Copley (District 9), and directed by Sebastián Cordero. The story revolves around six astronauts go to Jupiter’s fourth moon, Europa, to try to find extraterrestrial life. Michael Nyqvist (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Daniel Wu (吴彦祖), Christian Camargo, Karolina Wydra, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Anamaria Marinca also star.
The film follows a contemporary mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa to investigate the possible existence of alien life within our solar system. When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa’s icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discoveries that may lie in the Europan ocean. After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crewmember, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.
