Casting call out for "Hidden Figures" in Atlanta

Hidden Figures” will focus on Johnson, who along with her colleagues Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson, served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history, John Glenn’s historic launch into space. The three women crossed all gender, race and professional lines while embarking on the mission. John Glenn flew the Friendship 7 mission in 1962 which was the fist mission to successfully orbit the Earth and return home safely. According to the upcoming film’s IMDB page, “Hidden Figures” will also star Kirsten Dunst, Kevin Costner, Mahershala Ali and Octavia Spencer.

The FOX  studios movie, “Hidden Figures” (AKA “To The Moon and Back“) is based on Margot Lee Shetterly’s book “Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race.”  The movie adaptation focuses on African American mathematician, Katherine Johnson.  Taraji P. Henson is set to play the scientist. Tariji recently got a Golden Globe for her work as Cookie on the FOX hit TV series, “Empire.”

IMDB also provides the following descriptions for the upcoming movie which is due to hit theaters in 2017.

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as “human computers”, we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes. – 20th Century Fox
