‘Ash’: First Look At Eiza González And Aaron Paul In Flying Lotus’ New Sci-Fi Mystery

Flying Lotus aka Steven Ellison is something of Renaissance man. The Grammy Award-winning musical artist is also a record producer, DJ, composer for Adult Swim and many other brands. Oh, and he’s also a filmmaker, having made a splash in 2017 with the bizarre comedy Kuso and a segment in V/H/S/99.

Next up for Ellison is the sci-fi thriller Ash, and we have the first look at stars Eiza González and Aaron Paul. Ellison directs and scores his sophomore effort, which centers on a woman who wakes up on a distant planet to find that the entire crew of her space station have been murdered. Now she must decide who can be trusted, including the man sent to save her.

Also in the cast are Beulah Koale, Kate Elliot, and The Raid‘s Iko Uwais.

Here is the synopsis: When a woman (Gonzalez) wakes up on a distant planet and finds the crew of her space station viciously killed, she must decide if she can trust the man (Paul) sent to rescue her. 

Ash does not yet have a release date.
