Sanaa Lathan will star opposite Mark Strong in an indie sci-fi movie titled Ad Inexplorata, to be written and directed by Mark Elijah Rosenberg, and produced by Beasts of the Southern Wild producers Josh Penn and Matt Parker


In the film, Strong will play a NASA pilot who's on a one-way mission to Mars, while Lathan will play the Captain of one of four ships making the same trip. 

The project, which was developed at the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, is Strong's feature directorial debut. The filmmaker, who also happens to be founder of Rooftop Films, won the 2014 Sundance Institute/NHK Award - an honor that supports filmmakers considered visionary, on their next films. 

It's worth noting that Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild) previously won the award.

Sanaa Lathan most recently co-starred in Malcolm D. Lee's The Best Man Holiday.

She's no stranger to sci-fi, after having starred in 2004's AVP: Alien vs. Predator.

    Luv me some Ms. Sanaa Lathan. AVP was one of my favorite Predator movies and she definitely held her own. I will definitely be supporting this movie as well.
