Brad Pitt’s Sci-Fi Project Gets Release Date


Brad Pitt’s sci-fi film Ad Astra has landed an early 2019 release date. The Lost City of Z’s James Gray is directing, and he’s aiming to produce “the most realistic depiction of space travel that’s been put in a movie”, conveying the concept that “space is awfully hostile to us” with “kind of a Heart of Darkness story about travelling to the outer edge of our solar system.” Pitt will star as Roy McBride, an astronaut on a mission to Neptune. His character’s father went missing on a similar trip, years prior, providing an emotional hook to the film. Tommy Lee Jones has joined the production, as Clifford McBride, the aforementioned absent dad. Deadline is reporting that the film – which hales from 20th Century Fox, New Regency and Bona Film Group – is slated for a wide theatrical release starting January 11, 2019.
