Ruth Negga Joins Brad Pitt in 'Ad Astra'

Ruth Negga will star alongside Brad Pitt in James Gray‘s upcoming sci-fi film Ad Astra.

The film is being hailed 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,” THR reports.

As of right now, no details about Ruth‘s role have been revealed. Tommy Lee Jones is also set to star in the film.

    Great

  • RAINEY

    Hopefully we will see new pics of Brad on the 10th when he starts shooting.

  • Beedyq

    IF it actually starts shooting on the 10th lol.

  • toastie postie

    I like her a lot. Never heard about her, until Loving – I’m behind the times. I didn’t know she was also the actress on Preacher. Doh!

  • toastie postie

    I keep seeing that. I just thought it was sometime in Sept.

  • Puma

    Does this mean Angelina and her kids will finally be set free to leave La if they want to??

    Give Angelina her divorce. Set. Her. Free.

  • Whiteley

    She’s quite pretty and was really good in Loving.

  • Beedyq

    Think it was in one of the trades re the 10th, who knows what date is what until the film begins actually shooting.

  • Malf

    As I said in the last thread…cool & I really like her.πŸ‘

  • Beedyq

    She was also in WWZ, and she is great in Preacher.

  • Whiteley

    Oh right, she was one of the doctors in WWZ, kinda forgot that.

  • Malf

    She was in WWZ as one of the doctors at the Wales facility where they developed the zombie vaccine.

  • Beedyq

    Malf I am really wondering how WWZ2 will pick up the story line. Or maybe it will go entirely in another direction with Fincher directing? Think they will need to get that film started early next year as the longer time flies between sequels/prequels the worse the box office fares these days.

  • busted

    thanks for the heads up.. Need to catch up on the old thread too.

    Regarding the casting.. LOVE IT.. Ruth is so talented. I’m getting ready to start watching Preacher. She is so funny. And this looks good so far.

  • Beedyq

    OT: This Pcrap article is so twisted and biased toward one party by the other party’s publicist and reeks of being prepared well in advance for publication… this is when love is completely gone and a party has moved on in spite of what is said on IG…imo sad

    Facebook one has over 4 million

  • cheralp07

    That’s awesome.

  • bap

    Thank You TP for sharing the information.

  • Passing Through

    …and they tabs will say they’re “dating” in 3…2…1…

  • toastie postie

    I believe the count shown includes the different facebooks that have it on their page – like Loung Ung, Green Gecko Project (children who played in the movie), First They Killed My Father & perhaps fans who have it on that particular post on their page.

  • busted

    she is with Dominic Cooper. Her co-star in Preacher. But you know the tabs.

  • Passing Through

    They’ll shift gears as soon as Faris decides to feed them info. You know how P-Fail rolls…

  • Passing Through

    I was going to say – I know that…and THEY know that…but what’s the got to do with anything? LOL!

  • Passing Through

    You guys are cracking me up. Ever stop to wonder how many of them are repeat visits…people checking the view count, going there just to drive up the count, etc? And let’s not act like J-P fans are above doing that kind of thing… Some of them could even be even bots crawling the web indexing. Yeah, I know…silly me for pointing that last one out…

  • Passing Through

    I didn’t know there was anything on the old thread to KETCHUP on. There was literally like 15 comments there entire weekend…

  • Passing Through

    It’s an indoor, studio shoot – so I doubt we’ll see much of anything…and he’s in stealth mode right now anyway. Nobody’s seen him since the Frank Ocean concert…

  • Beedyq

    Yep Pratt was just first with his to Pcrap.

    IG announcements are the new way to go I guess. Tabs being left in the dust.

  • Beedyq

    Slow news days lol.

  • Beedyq

    Master Ninja is in total stealth mode πŸ˜†

  • toastie postie

    I’m here to cheer you up.

  • Beedyq

    DC is perfection in Preacher. As is Negga.

    I am laughing.

    Netflix Buys Comics Publisher Behind Kingsman, Kick-Ass

    Netflix β€” in the first company acquisition in its history β€” has bought Millarworld, the comic-book publishing firm founded by Mark Millar, creator of characters and stories including Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Old Man Logan.

    http://disq.us/url?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvariety.com%2F2017%2Fdigital%2Fnews%2Fnetflix-acquires-mark-millar-millarworld-kingsman-kick-ass-1202517270%2F%3AjhD1dIFYEddRt2xo_Xb-kqXQDXE&cuid=3175395

    +++++++++++++++++++++

    Hmmmm…This is interesting. Millar has had a hard time getting some of his original comics to filmtv, so I bet this is about trying to push some of those projects along. Kind of strange though that they didn’t mention Wanted…because that started out as a graphic novel by Millar…

  • Passing Through

    I didn’t know I was depressed…but thanks!

  • Passing Through

    More like slow news WEEK…

  • Beedyq

    Agree πŸ˜†

    If not for that asinine VF interviewer slow news WEEKS πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

  • toastie postie

    It’s mentioned in another article I saw on twitter – has to be translated.

    Good actress, but I don’t fought her for accepting a part in this s hit for a check.

  • Passing Through

    They’re not an industry trade. I only brought it up because I find it hilarious when the trades go out of their way to NOT mention Angie in positive stories when it’s an obvious tie-in because Wanted was a bigger hit than The Kingman and Kick-Ass – and the only reason there wasn’t a sequel is because Angie didn’t want to do one. BUT…they but go out of their way to name drop her if it’s a negative story. I can guarantee you – if this Variety story had said Mark Millar was bankrupt or unmasked as a pedo? They’d have said Angie was in the biggest hit adapted from his comicsgraphics novels and never even mentioned those other movies.

  • chun key pipe

    See what?… Just to look at him… Ahahahaha

  • busted

    I didn’t know. I posted something this morning but wasn’t online at all today. I just thought that there may have been something.

  • busted

    I wonder if he has changed his look for the film. It looks like this is not going to be a big cast.

  • busted

    I saw lots of updates about the views. Does that really tell you anything about what the viewership is going to be. I watched it a couple of times because I do that with their trailers; but I don’t usually watch a trailer over and over.

  • Passing Through

    Yep. On another note…I was doing a happy dance this morning when I realized the weekend passed most Drumpf-free…

  • busted

    It makes it better when we stop going on and on about some things as well.

  • Beedyq

    Totally agree with this.

  • chun key pipe

    Which is the pappy, Pitt or Tommy Lee?…watch, Pitt is the son… Ahahahaha

  • Beedyq

    Drumpf made up for his twitter silence this morning and Gen Kelly is there in NJ with him. There is no way to control his behavior and the Gen has set himself up for a thankless and futile task in taking that job in the WH.
