Stepping into an undisclosed role, Sutherland will join the story which centers on space engineer Roy McBride – played by Brad Pitt – taking on a voyage of our solar system to find his father who, 20 years previously, embarked on a one-way mission to Neptune looking for any signs of extra-terrestrial life. His father, a man who is classed as a renegade scientist, seemingly poses a threat to all mankind.
Sutherland, who played the evil President Snow in the Jennifer Lawrence lead Hunger Games adaptations, will soon be appearing on the big screen opposite Helen Mirren in Sony Pictures Classics The Leisure Seeker,
