According to Deadline, Actress Sanaa Lathan heads back to space in the upcoming film Ad Inexplorata. Produced by the team that brought us Beasts of the Southern Wild, Ad Inexplorata features Lathan playing the captain of one of four ships headed to Mars.
Last seen in The Best Man Holiday, this won’t be the first time we’ve seen Lathan in space. When it comes to sci-fi she’s best remembered in Alien vs. Predator as a scientist who managed to “tame” the predator and live throughout the ordeal. Her next film Repentance, starring alongside Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie, drops later this month.
