Donald Sutherland Joins James Gray's 'Ad Astra'

Donald Sutherland is heading into orbit for New Regency's Ad Astra, James Gray's upcoming sci-fi epic.

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

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.

Also, here's the story breakdown as summarized by Deadline back in June:

In Ad Astra (which means "to the stars" in Latin), Pitt would play the slightly autistic space engineer Roy McBride. Twenty years after his father left on a one-way mission to Neptune in order to find signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence, McBride travels through the solar system to find him and understand why his mission failed.
