‘Loving’ star Ruth Negga set to take on Sci-Fi Epic ‘Ad Astra’
08 Aug 2017 : Katie McNeice
The Oscar-nominated Irish actress has been cast in the project to be directed by James Gray (The Lost City of Z), with other cast members including Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones and John Finn.

‘Ad Astra’ sees an Army Corps Engineer become determined to find his father, who disappeared on a mission to find alien life two decades previously.

‘Klepto’ co-writer Ethan Gross is working on a script with Gray who, in addition to directing, is also co-producing alongside Marc Butan (The Zookeeper’s Wife), Anthony Katagas (Nerve) and Rodrigo Teixeira (Call Me by Your Name).

Distributors are Bona Film Group for China and Fox for the US and international markets.

Season Two of AMC series ‘Preacher’ starring Negga as Tulip O’Hare began to air this June. Alongside the hugely popular comic book adaptation, she has recently starred in ‘Warcraft: The Beginning’ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’.
