Hidden Figures: Uncovering a Tale of Rocket Science, Race and the ’60s
NY Times has published today an article about the upcoming Hidden Figures. The film stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kirsten Dunst, Kevin Costner, Aldis Hodge, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali and Glen Powell. The film chronicles Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), the brilliant mathematician who worked with Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) as the main brains behind John Glenn’s first trip into space and back in 1962. People remember his being the first orbit of the Earth, now we’ll properly learn who helped get him there. Kirsten will play a NASA supervisor.
Ted Melfi is in the director’s chair for this one, with writer Allison Schroeder adapting Margot Lee Shetterly’s book Hidden Figures: The Story Of The African-American Women Who Helped Win The Space Race, which doesn’t hit stores until September. The film is set to hit theaters next January 13, 2017 – if nothing changes until there.

For this film, which also stars Kevin Costner and Jim Parsons, the building was standing in for the Langley Research Center in Virginia. In the fusty air inside, amid snaking cables and extras dressed like squares from 1961, portable air-conditioners fought a mighty and futile battle with Atlanta’s wilting heat.
Ms. Gigliotti sat before a monitor, headphones on, glued to a scene being shot in an adjacent room. Kirsten Dunst, who plays a NASA supervisor, was fixing Ms. Henson with an acid stare. “They’ve never had a colored in here before Katherine,” she said coolly, “Don’t embarrass me.”
Ms. Henson blanched, turned and was about to walk through a nearby door when her handbag got stuck on the doorknob. Mr. Melfi called cut.
“Did I steal that or what?” Ms. Henson asked sarcastically, throwing an expletive in.
