Gary Oldman, Carla Gugino and Britt Robertson have joined Asa Butterfield in STX Entertainment’s untitled intergalactic love story.

Peter Chelsom will direct the pic. Allan Loeb penned the script, which is based on a short story he wrote with Richard Lewis and Stewart Schill. Lewis will also produce the film.

Butterfield’s character is the first human born on Mars. He’s raised in an experimental colony on the red planet after his astronaut mother dies during childbirth. Gardner begins an online romance with a girl living in Colorado (Robertson) 16 years later, and decides to travel across the universe, even with Earth’s gravity threatening his very existence, to find her.

Butterfield can be seen next in Fox’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” while Oldman last starred in “Child 44” opposite Tom Hardy. Carla Gugino most recently appeared on the Fox drama “Wayward Pines” and the New Line disaster pic “San Andreas,” while Robertson’s previous credits include “The Longest Ride” and “Tomorrowland.”
