The drama is the feature directorial debut of longtime British TV actress Shelagh McLeod.

Richard Dreyfuss and Colm Feore have just wrapped production on their latest movie, Astronaut, a Canadian indie that shot north of Toronto in December, producers confirmed. 

Dreyfuss played a lonely widower who battles his family, ill health and time to win a competition for a golden ticket to space.

The ensemble cast included House of Cards star Feore, Lyriq Bent, Krista Bridges, Richie Lawrence, Graham Greene, and a cameo appearance by Colin Mochrie (Whose Line Is It Anyway?).

Directed and written by McLeod, Astronaut is produced by Jessica Adams and Sean Buckley and has financing from Telefilm Canada.

Dreyfuss is represented by APA and Feore by Gersh.
