Star-Studded Summer Movie Filmed at Florida’s Space-Themed Attraction

Florida’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is set to star alongside Hollywood A-listers, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and Woody Harrelson, in the upcoming summer movie, “Fly me to the Moon” being released internationally on Friday, July 12.

The movie, which is set against the high-stakes backdrop of the 1960s space race and NASA’s historic Apollo 11 moon landing, tells the fictional story of marketing genius Kelly Jones (Johansson), as her world collides with that of Cole Davis (Tatum), a NASA employee who has been given the difficult task of keeping America’s mission to put a man on the moon afloat.
