Roland Emmerich has had to make some changes to the cast for his latest sci-fi action film Moonfall. Specifically, Stanley Tucci has had to drop out of the movie because of Canadian coronavirus travel restrictions, and Michael Peña will replace him.

Peña is the latest addition to the movie alongside Carolina Bartczak, Maxim Roy and Stephen Bogaert who are all joining the cast, which already includes leads Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Eme Ikwuakor, Charlie Plummer and Donald Sutherland.

Sounding a lot like Armageddon, but with a different celestial threat, the film finds a mysterious force knocking the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sending it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact, and against all odds, a ragtag team launches an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love and risking everything to land on the lunar surface and save our planet from annihilation.

Emmerich, Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen wrote the script, and the film is targeting a 2022 release date.
