About a month ago I was fortunate to catch Space Station 76 at Outfest. Fresh, unique and thoroughly entertaining, the film was directed by the prolific film and TV actor, Jack Plotnick and is undoubtedly one of the most surprising and original movies in recent memory -- a dark, brooding comedy disguised as an homage to 1970s sci-fi. By juxtaposing serious character drama with the visual campiness of retrofuturism, Plotnick created what is sure to become a cult classic. The film stars Matt Bomer, Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Jerry O'Connell, Marisa Coughlan and Matthew Morrison -- all navigating beautifully through the film's quirky, unsettling tone and giving very compelling performances.
What was the genesis of this project? And what inspired you to go with the 1970s sci-fi setting?
