Deadline reports that Parker Posey is the latest name to be joining the cast of Netflix’s Lost In Space reboot.
The new Lost In Space takes its cues from the original CBS series, revolving around the Robinson family, which is forced to come together in a time of crisis. Stranded light years from their intended destination, the Robinson’s find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and their own personal demons.
Parker Posey (Whose credits include Granite Flats and Café Society) will be playing the role of Dr. Smith, originally played by Jonathan Harris in the television series and Gary Oldman in the 1998 feature film.
The reboot series has been written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, with Zack Estrin serving as Executive Producer (and will also serve as showrunner) and Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni of Synthesis Entertainment, as well as Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig of Legendary TV-based Applebox serving as Producers. Molly Parker joins a cast that includes Taylor Russell, Toby Stephens, Maxwell Jenkins and Molly Parker.
