“Preacher” and “Loving” star Ruth Negga is set to join Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones in James Gray’s upcoming sci-fi epic “Ad Astra” for New Regency and 20th Century Fox.
The adventure tale follows 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 secret for now. Gray will direct from a script he co-wrote with Ethan Gross. Pitt, Gray, Rodrigo Teixeira, Anthony Katagas, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are producing.
