Warner Bros. Developing Story About Makers of Moonwalk Spacesuit

Spacesuit

While The Social Network producers are working on Sex on the Moon, a story about a college student and two female accomplices who stole moon rocks from a supposedly "impregnable" high-tech vault, another original story with ties to space is coming from Warner Bros. Deadline has word that the studio has just hired up and coming writer Richard Cordiner to adapt Spacesuit, based on the book of the same name by Nicholas de Monchaux. The film will chronicle the true story of how bra and girdle designers from Playtex successfully made the spacesuit which made it possible for astronauts to land on the moon in 1969.

It actually sounds like this could unfold like The Social Network as it follows the success of seemingly unqualified people, including a former TV repairman, a car mechanic, and their crew of spirited seamstresses, as they accomplished with aerospace geniuses could not. It's amazing this kind of story hasn't gotten more attention considering Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong couldn't have walked on the moon without these suits, but there are always unsung heroes behind the greatest triumphs of mankind. Cordiner is a new writer, but his script The Shark is Not Working, about the making of Jaws, made the Black List, and that got him a script deal at Warner Bros. Stay tuned.

Back from days when just being a man meant you could do anything you wanted regardless of qualifications.

Actually back in those days you could do anything you wanted if you were white. Different story for minorities.
