20th Century Fox has unveiled our first look at Brad Pitt in Ad Astra, the upcoming sci-fi thriller from The Lost City of Z director James Gray. Although the film is scheduled to be released in January of next year, some awards season columnists have begun speculating that it could be a surprise, last-minute addition to this year’s race.

The film, which was written by Gray and Ethan Gross, follows space engineer Roy McBride (Pitt) as he travels through the solar system to find his father (Tommy Lee Jones) who left on a one-way mission to the planet of Neptune more than 20 years ago in order to find signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence.

While promoting City of Z last year, Gray said that Ad Astra would resemble Joseph Conrad’s 1899 novella Heart of Darkness, a frame narrative about Charles Marlow’s experience as an ivory transporter down the Congo River in Central Africa.

In addition to starring in the film, Pitt is also producing along with his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner and RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeria, Keep Your Head Productions’ Anthony Katagas, and Gray.

Hollywood leading man Brad Pitt’s Make It Right organization has sued New Orleans architect John C. Williams in Civil District Court for defective design work that led to leaks and other flaws in the experimental homes, dating back to 2009. Make It Right claims it paid Williams $4 million as the avant-garde project’s architect of record, who oversaw the construction of the 106 ecologically conscious, eye-catching designs.

According to the lawsuit, filed by attorney Victor J. Franckiewicz, Jr., repairing the damage caused by rain and humidity could run Make It Right $20 million.

Starting in 2006, Pitt used his celebrity clout to establish a charity that replaced houses destroyed by the catastrophic flooding that accompanied Hurricane Katrina at affordable prices tailored to displaced residents. The endeavor, which used house plans by architectural superstars such as Shigeru Ban, Thom Mayne and Frank Gehry, was certainly one of the most audacious post-K recovery projects.

Brad Pitt’s foundation is looking at a major lawsuit over the degradation of homes built in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The forthcoming lawsuit against Pitt’s Make It Right foundation will be filed on behalf of some Lower Ninth Ward residents who, according to what attorney Ron Austin told WWL-TV, have reported sicknesses, headaches and infrastructural issues.

Pitt founded the venture in 2007 with the help of award-winning architects two years after Katrina devastated the city and essentially washed away what would become the Make It Right enclave.

Construction began in 2008, working toward replacing the lost housing with 150 avant-garde dwellings that were storm-safe, solar-powered, highly insulated and “green.” The homes were available at an average price of $150,000 to residents who received resettlement financing, government grants and donations from the foundation itself.

But 10 years and more than $26 million later, construction has halted at around 40 houses short of Pitt’s goal, and some homes are falling apart. Residents have reported sagging porches, mildewing wood and leaky roofs.

Brad Pitt is pictured before pink stand-in structures (background) where 150 ecologically sustainable homes are to be built 03 December 2007 in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans, Louisiana. Pitt is spending $12 million with his “Make It Right Project” to build the homes where levees broke and floodwater pushed houses from their foundations during Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

“Essentially, Make It Right was making a lot of promises to come back and fix the homes that they initially sold these people and have failed to do so,” Austin said.

The foundation in 2014 did spend an average of $12,000 each on 39 homes to replace the deteriorating TimberSIL lumber, which was billed as environmentally friendly, weatherproof and durable, NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reported. Make It Right then sued TimberSIL for $500,000, but it’s unclear whether that dispute was settled.

Despite that expenditure, a year later Pitt expressed satisfaction with what had turned into a proper Crescent City neighborhood.
