“Weightless” is set in the near-future and is centered on a female astronaut who causes a fatal motorcycle accident. She then flees the scene of the collision so as to not lose her spot on the space shuttle’s next flight.

Alba is set to reprise her roles in “Sin City 2” and “Machete Kills 2.”

“Weightless” will mark Addica’s feature directing debut. His writing credits include “Monster’s Ball,” “Birth” and “The King.”
