Ruairi Robinson stated that as a first time director, to get to work with a cast of that caliber was amazing. On the casting process, he commented that he "sort of picked cast members that never normally do this kind of film. They all do serious proper movies". He also said that he "liked the idea of putting people who would never normally do Sci-Fi stuff into a Sci-Fi movie, because they are going to take it seriously then and people are going to take them seriously".

Vincent Campbell: There's a pretty good chance I'm infected too. If that's the case, I've got just enough fuel left to drop out of orbit and burn up in the atmosphere. At least it'll be quick. You should get this in about 15 minutes, so, uh, I guess I'll be waiting. Five eleven Zulu, Aurora lander out.
