Ruth Negga has joined Brad Pitt in the sci-fi adventure “Ad Astra,” with James Grey directing from a script he co-wrote with Ethan Gross.
New Regency, 20th Century Fox, and Bona Film Group are financing “Ad Astra.” Fox will distribute in the movie in all markets, aside from China, where Bona Film Group will distribute.
The story centers on a man’s journey across a lawless solar system to find his missing father, a renegade scientist who poses a threat to all of mankind.
Pitt, Dede Gardner, and Jeremy Kleiner are producing through their Plan B company with RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira, Keep Your Head Productions’ Anthony Katagas, and Gray. Mad River’s Marc Butan, and RT Features’ Lourenco Sant’Anna and Sophie Mas are executive producing, along with Yu Dong, Jeffrey Chan, Anthony Mosawi, and Paul Conway.
Negga stars on AMC’s “Preacher” and received a best actress Oscar nomination last year for her work in “Loving” opposite Joel Edgerton. She is repped by ICM, Principal Entertainment, and Markham Froggatt and Irwin.
