Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is the upcoming Brad Pitt release everyone can’t stop talking about right now, but the actor has another project set to open before “Hollywood” that ought to be on everyone’s radar. At least, that is if it actually opens in 2019 at all. Pitt is the lead in James Gray’s science-fiction epic “Ad Astra,” and the director recently cast doubt on meeting the film’s deadline while speaking with The Film Stage.
20th Century Fox is behind “Ad Astra” and had originally set a January 11, 2019 opening date. The date had some thinking Fox could sneak a one-week theatrical run in December 2018 to qualify the movie for awards consideration, but Gray confirmed the movie is nowhere near done.
