APA has signed First Man's Lukas Haas, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.

In Damien Chazelle's new biopic, which premieres Aug. 29 as Venice's opening night film, the actor plays Mike Collins, the Apollo 11 astronaut who piloted the command module Columbia while Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) and Buzz Aldrin (Corey Stoll) became the first two people to walk on the moon.
