Ruth Negga Joins Brad Pitt In Ad Astra

Oscar-nominated actress Ruth Negga will star with Brad Pitt in New Regency's Ad Astra, James Gray's upcoming sci-fi epic according to THR.

Tommy Lee Jones also is attached to the project, which is described as an adventure film about one man’s journey across a lawless and unforgiving solar system to find his missing father, a renegade scientist who poses a threat to all of mankind.

Negga's role is being kept under wraps for now.

Gray will direct the feature film from a script he co-wrote with Ethan Gross. New Regency, 20th Century Fox and Bona Film Group are financing the pic. Fox will distribute in the U.S. and internationally in every market except Greater China, where Bona Film Group will distribute.

Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are producing under their Plan B banner 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.

Ad Astra continues a string of successful film partnerships between New Regency and Plan B, including the Oscar-nominated The Big Short and Oscar winner 12 Years a Slave, as well as director Ryan Coogler's upcoming feature Wrong Answer, written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and starring Michael B. Jordan.

Negga, who stars on the AMC series Preacher (the 13-episode second season premiered in June), received a Golden Globe and Oscar nomination for her work in Jeff Nichols’ Loving opposite Joel Edgerton. She is repped by ICM, Principal Entertainment and Markham Froggatt and Irwin.
