London, April 3 (IANS) A movie is to be made on American astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon. Based on the book by NASA historian James R. Hansen, the story recounts how Armstrong was determined to reach the moon. He was so driven that he was known as the Ice Commander. Newcomer Nicole Perlman will pen the script, reports.

She said: “The closer he got to the moon, the further away he became from his family. He had a family tragedy before Apollo that turned him into this driven astronaut, and he became such a perfect hero that while Buzz Aldrin was announced to be the first man on the moon, NASA reversed its decision because Neil was regarded as more heroic.”
