The '70s were a great time period for sci-fi films, but they weren't without a hefty share of cheesiness. Now, writer/director Jack Plotnick is bringing us his new sci-fi parody Space Station 76, and with it comes a bearded Matt Bomer accidentally feeling up Liv Tyler with what looks like a 1980s Nintendo Power Glove.
The film, set in the future - as imagined by 1970s set designers- follows a ragtag group of astronauts living on a space station with a bunch of blocky robots. Things are turned on their head when a new female assistant captain (Tyler) arrives, leading to tension between her and the hard-drinking, hard-smoking Captain Glenn, played by Patrick Wilson.
Bomer plays the ship's mechanic Ted, who is married to Misty (Marisa Coughlan). Jerry O'Connell also stars as astronaut Steve. The film is described as "a character-driven, domestic dramedy… where personalities and asteroids collide."
No release date for Space Station 76 has been officially set.
