Singer Janelle Monáe cast opposite Taraji P. Henson in the true story of three African American mathematicians who calculated the trajectory necessary to put the first maned U.S. space ship into orbit...
Hidden Figures tells the the story of NASA scientists Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson and how their major contributions to the United States space program went unacknowledged.
Taraji P. Henson will play Katherine Johnson, Octavia Spencer will play Dorothy Vaughan and Janelle Monáe will play Mary Jackson.
Kevin Costner has been cast as the head of the space program.
