Deep Impact is a 1998 American science fiction disaster film directed by Mimi Leder, written by Bruce Joel Rubin and Michael Tolkin, and starring Robert Duvall, Téa Leoni, Elijah Wood, Vanessa Redgrave, Maximilian Schell, Leelee Sobieski, and Morgan Freeman. Steven Spielberg served as an executive producer of this film. It was released by Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks in the United States on May 8, 1998. The film depicts the attempts to prepare for and destroy a 7-mile-wide comet set to collide with the Earth and cause a mass extinction. On May 10, 1998, teenage amateur astronomer Leo Beiderman (Elijah Wood) discovers an unusual object near the stars Mizar and Alcor at a star party in Richmond, Virginia with his school's astronomy club. His teacher alerts astronomer Dr. Marcus Wolf (Charles Martin Smith), who realizes that the object is a comet on a collision course with Earth. Wolf tries to get the information out, but dies in a car accident before he can alert the world. One year later, MSNBC journalist Jenny Lerner (Téa Leoni) investigates the sudden resignation of Secretary of the Treasury Alan Rittenhouse (James Cromwell) and his connection to "Ellie," supposedly a mistress. On the ride back from interviewing Rittenhouse, she is intercepted by the FBI and brought before President Tom Beck (Morgan Freeman). Lerner soon realizes that Ellie is not a mistress but an acronym: "E.L.E.", for "Extinction-Level Event". Due to Lerner's investigation, President Beck makes an announcement earlier than planned: the comet named Wolf-Beiderman (named after its discoverers Wolf and Beiderman, the latter of whom was erroneously believed killed in the earlier car accident) is 7 miles (11 km) long—large enough to cause a mass extinction, and possibly wipe out humanity, if it hits Earth. He also reveals that the United States and Russia have been secretly constructing an Orion spacecraft called Messiah in orbit, in order to transport a team led by Oren Monash (Ron Eldard) and including veteran astronaut Spurgeon Tanner (Robert Duvall) to the comet, so that its path toward Earth can be diverted using nuclear weapons. Leo even speaks before his town following the error of the White House thinking that he died with Dr. Wolf.
