Europa Report - Poster 0001 | A Constantly Racing Mind
The "Europa Report" a story written by Philip Gelatt ("The Bleeding House"), whose new Sci-Fi thriller involves a crew of international six astronauts embarking on a privately funded three year journey to one of Jupiter's Galilean moons, more specifically Jupiter's fourth moon, Europa. The mission is trying to find extraterrestrial life, by exploring its oceans and confirm these findings of life. However, following a disastrous technical failure and the death of one of the crew, the remaining crew struggle to regain communication with Earth. 

Directing "Europa Report" is 39 year-old Sebastián Cordero, who in 1999  wrote and directed  "Ratas, Ratones, Rateros " a film  about Ecuadorian poverty.  Cordero is a graduate of University of Southern California. In the past, Cordero has worked with Guillermo Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth") , and Alfonso Cuarón, who has his own Sci-Fi thriller, "Gravity"  coming out this year as well.
The film stars an international cast  including Sharlto Copley ("Elysium," "District 9"),  Michael Nyqvist, ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy), Christian Camargo ("Hurt Locker" "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" Parts I & II), Daniel Wu, and Anamaria Marinca. 

Producing " Europa Report"  is Ben Browning of Wayfare Entertainment (now Start Motion Pictures) who has worked with James Cameron on the 2011 film "Sanctum" that they produced together.  Best of all, in my opinion, is that Bear McCreary of "Battlestar Galactica," and "Walking Dead" is providing the musical score for this film.

A promotional website up as Europa Ventures L.L.C. billing themselves as THE WORLD'S LEADER IN AEROSPACE AND EXPLORATION.  Perhaps this is what Virgin Galactic becomes in the future.
