Hollywood star Adam Sandler is set to headline a screen adaptation of Spaceman of Bohemia, a sci-fi novel by Czech author Jaroslav Kalfar.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the untitled Netflix project will be helmed by Johan Renk, the director of HBO’s acclaimed Chernobyl mini-series.

The 2017 book follows a Czech astronaut who is sent on a mission to investigate a mysterious cloud of space dust near Venus. On the eight-month mission, he is forced to face loneliness and see his marriage fall apart.

Things take a turn when he befriends a giant talking alien spider, who may or may not be a manifestation of his mental breakdown.
