Sanaa Lathan portrays an FBI agent in the heist thriller “Now You See Me 2,” an astronaut in the sci-fi drama “Approaching the Unknown,” and a crack investigator in Fox’s upcoming “Shots Fired” — an event series about the aftermath of a racially charged police shooting in the South. The wide-ranging star says what she enjoys most about acting is the constant change, and the rare opportunity to see various points of view.
Read what she has to say at Variety:
This movie fell under the radar for me, it came out earlier this month with barely a whimper (and it also has rating of 4.8 on IMDB, yikes). Here's the synopsis according to Deadline:
'Approaching the Unknown' follows astronaut William D. Stanaforth, sent on a one way solo mission as part of humanity’s first steps toward colonizing Mars. Watched by the entire world, he is completely alone, and when the trip takes a toll on the ship’s life support systems, he is forced to make impossible choices that threaten his sanity, mission and very existence. Luke Wilson, Sanaa Lathan, Anders Danielsen Lie, and Charles Baker also star. It’s written and directed by Mark Elijah Rosenberg, winner of the 2015 Sundance Institute/NHK Award, and produced by Josh Penn, Matthew Parker, Thomas B. Fore, Jason Michael Berman, Mark Roberts, and P. Jennifer Dana. Richard Loughran, John Hinkson, Fred Bolle, Ross Jacobson, Sheldon Rabinowitz, and Edward Vaisman exec produce.
