Thomas Horn On For Space Warriors

Thomas Horn was plucked from near-obscurity to co-star alongside Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. He’s showing no signs of giving up the acting lark after that experience, and has just booked two very different movies: Space Warriors and Joe’s Mountain.

While they both sound like they could be theme-park rides, only Space Warriors has the potential to become an attraction. Sean McNamara is directing the film, which appears to be an updated version of 1986’s Space Camp. The plot finds a group of kids who win places at NASA’s training camp for wannabe astronauts, and who must rocket into action (literally) when something goes wrong on a space station. There’s no word on whether a cute/annoying robot will be involved at any point.

Once he’s finished pretending to be weightless and bonding with his fellow astro-nuts, Horn will switch to starring opposite Kris Kristofferson in heart-warming drama Joe’s Mountain. Chuck Rose is directing the film, which finds a former lothario (Kristofferson) miraculously cured of cancer that tries to help a boy with bad lungs (Horn) by taking him to what he believes is a magic lake. There’s no word on whether a cute robot will... Wait, we’ve done that bit.
