+ Tessa Thompson is heading back to space in the sci-fi thriller Ash. She’ll PRESUMABLY be playing a human space explorer who has to interact potentially nefarious super-human beings. When she wakes up on a distant planet to find that the whole crew of her space station has been murdered, she’s got to figure out if she can rely the guy (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who’s been sent to rescue her. He doesn’t trust her! She doesn’t him! One of them probably will be an alien! Maybe both! According to Deadline, “the Grammy-winning musician and filmmaker Flying Lotus — otherwise known as Steven Ellison — will direct as his sophomore feature.” Whatever happens, I hope they give her a laser gun! Or a lightsaber!
