MOSCOW (Roscosmos PR) — The leading role in the first feature film to be filmed in space will be played by a woman. The decision was made by the producers of the picture in the interests of the plot. 

Previously, the creators of the project planned to hold a competition among both men and women, having two scenarios, but in the process of further work and discussion, they came to the conclusion that the female image is certainly more advantageous for the picture.

The space drama with the tentative title “Challenge” is a joint project of the State Corporation Roscosmos, Channel One and the studio Yellow, Black and White.  Filming will take place at the International Space Station in the fall of 2021.

In the near future, Channel One will announce the start of an All-Russian open competition, following which the leading performer and her understudy will be selected.
