André 3000 to star in Claire Denis’ new sci-fi movie
Outkast’s André 3000 is heading to space for director Claire Denis’ upcoming English-language debut, High Life, which is currently filming. The sci-fi vehicle will also star Juliette Binoche, Robert Pattinson and Mia Goth.
With a script by Swing Time author Zadie Smith, the movie sends its main characters—convicts looking to reduce their prison sentence—on a quest through a black hole to discover alternate sources of energy. According to IMDb, the space inmates then become trial patients in a human reproduction experiment.
Denis, of Chocolat fame, worked with Binoche—and Gerard Depardieu—earlier this year on Cannes Film Festival opener Let the Sunshine In. There is no release date set yet for the film, but Binoche has been leaking behind-the-scenes snaps from the inside of the shuttle, which you can check out on her Instagram.
