But, as the source material is both the 1965 novel and the movie based on that, we can guess what might happen in the story.
This book is about a man from another planet who came to Earth and was hiding his true identity. He invented a new technology that made him rich and uses his income to build a spaceship. He wants to bring the last 300 Antheans to Earth because they are almost all dead because of war.
But Newton’s inventions catch the eye of a science professor who suspects they are too advanced for a human to have come up with. The US government is in agreement and sends the FBI to see what Newton’s true identity is.
Who will be starring in The Man Who Fell to Earth reboot?
Some famous actors have been cast for this show. Chiwetel Ejiofor is playing the role of Newton. He was in 12 Years a Slave, The Martian, and Dirty Pretty Things.
He is joined by Naomie Harris who plays an engineer and scientist and also has Rob Delaney who plays Hatch Flood, a troubled tech socialite. A new actor in the show is Jimmi Simpson. He plays Spencer Clay, who is obsessed with finding out about Newton.

We loved the emotional moments in the book and we loved the visual spectacle of the movie. Lumet added, “We are taking it forward.”
A new movie about Bowie is being criticized. The late singer’s ex-wife called it a waste of time and said that the singer would not have watched it.
She said that it should be called the Ron Oberman Whingeing and Whining story. The story was not entertaining at all, she didn’t find anything about it to be interesting. It was more dreary than a one-star documentary, and without the music there is nothing.
