Adam Sandler is known for his comedy chops but he has recently returned to serious roles with the film Uncut Gems in 2019. Spaceman seems to be another hard-hitting film for him, and is adapted from the novel The Spaceman of Bohemia, a sci-fi story from Jaroslav Kalfař. As further casting news and other facts are released, Express.co.uk breaks down all there is to know about Spaceman.
When is Spaceman released on Netflix?
At the moment, the film is in its pre-production stage, meaning there is no news on its release date.
The time between filming and release can differ from six months to a couple of years, especially with the coronavirus slowing down film releases.
Express.co.uk will update this story once the release date has been announced.

Johan Renck, who directed Chernobyl, will direct the film, saying of Adam’s casting in October 2020: “As we prepare for our voyage to Chopra, I couldn’t be more pleased to have found the perfect partner in Adam.
“And now, with the support of the brilliant Netflix family, I am profoundly excited to set off on our impossible journey.”
Adam will star in the leading role, who was named Jakub Procházka in the original text, while Carey will play his wife.
“It just so happens to belong to a creature from the beginning of time lurking in the shadows of his ship.”
In the novel, this creature is a giant arachnid named Hanuš, and while the novel is of the sci-fi genre, it is also absurdist.
This would suggest the film will likely take some odd twists and turns but fans will have to wait for further updates.
At present, given filming has not begun, there is no trailer for Spaceman.
