A Billionaire’s private space exploration program returns to earth with an extra passenger: a kidnapped extra-terrestrial creature from a newly discovered planet.

Film Life Factory and others from Hollywood, India, Bangladesh and Roswell, NM are on board to finance director Asif Akbar’s modern day, original science fiction story.

Astro will film in an alien territory, such as Roswell, New Mexico from late November. The shoot is also extended to Southeast Asia and Los Angeles. The film features action vet Gary Daniels (The Expendables), as well as Jonathan Lipnicki, Louis Mandylor, Michael Pare, and Eric Roberts.

Ensemble also includes Bollywood star Omi Vaidya, Marshal Hilton, Orson Chaplin, Spice Williams-Crosby, Max Wasa, Gianni Capaldi, Luke Crosby, Christopher Showerman, Sean O’Bryan, and Courtney Akbar. Screenplay by Asif Akbar and Bernard Selling.

Other details of the plot are being kept under wraps until production is finished.

Astro is planned to release in 2017.
