Tessa Thompson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Be Star In Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Ash’

Tessa Thompson (Thor: Love and Thunder) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Super Pumped) is set to star in the sci-fi thriller ‘Ash’ from Flying Lotus, also known as Steven Ellison. The film follows a woman (Thompson) who wakes up on a distant planet and finds the crew of her space station killed. She must decide if she can trust the man (Gordon-Levitt) sent to rescue her.

Directed by Steven Ellison (Flying Lotus) from a screenplay written by Jonni Remmler. The production is scheduled to start in New Zealand next year. Neill Blomkamp (District 9) will executive produce the film, which its financier XYZ Films will rep for worldwide sales at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival.

In a statement, Flying Lotus told “It’s an absolute dream come true to collaborate with some of the most talented actors out there!.”

GFC’s Founder and Managing Director Matthew Metcalfe and XYZ Films Partner Nate Bolotin told, “We couldn’t be happier for Tessa and Joseph to headline this film, they are both incredibly talented and gifted actors. With Steve at the helm, this is going to be a truly visionary film and we couldn’t be more excited to take the project into production in 2023.”

XYZ Films and GFC Films will produce, with Blomkamp exec producing alongside Echo Lake Entertainment. Ash follows XYZ’s collaboration with GFC on Toa Fraser’s New Zealand Oscar entry The Dead Lands, which was presented to the U.S. market by James Cameron, and Toa’s subsequent action-thriller 6 Days starring Jamie Bell, Mark Strong, and Abbie Cornish, which debuted globally on Netflix in 2017.

Deadline reported the news first.
