Washington: `Manchester by the Sea` star Michelle Williams has been roped in to play the role of the late astronaut Christa McAuliffe in the upcoming movie `The Challenger`. The film, centred on the 1986 Space Shuttle disaster, will be helmed by `Land of Mine director` Martin Zandvliet, reports Deadline. It is being produced by John and Art Linson and Argent Pictures` Ben Renzo.

McAuliffe was an American teacher who was selected to join NASA`s Teacher in Space Project. She was one of the seven crew members killed in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.
