The epic sci-fi fantasy picture Rebel Moon, directed by American filmmaker Zack Snyder and set to premiere on Netflix, will star Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Bae Doona, and Ray Fisher.
Jena Malone, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, and Sky Yang have all signed on to play characters in the film. Sofia Boutella is leading the ensemble in the narrative of a tranquil colony on the edge of the galaxy that is threatened by the troops of a tyrant regent named Belisarius, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Desperate, the colonists send a young woman with a secret background to find warriors from other worlds to assist them in making a stand.
The character information is as scarce as an honest galactic mercenary, but according to sources, Hounsou is portraying General Titus (good/bad guy status unclear), Bae is a nemesis who wields a sword, and Fisher is Blood Axe, a resistance warrior.
The script was co-written by Zack Snyder, Shay Hatten, and Kurt Johnstad, who also co-wrote 300, Snyder’s adaptation of the Frank Miller comic. Snyder and Johnstad are credited for their contributions to the tale. Snyder is also producing under his The Stone Quarry production company alongside his producing partner and wife, Deborah Snyder, and Wesley Coller.
Charlie Hunnam, who already has previously acted in films such as Pacific Rim and King Arthur, was among the stars of FX’s The Sons of Anarchy. He is presently shooting Shantaram, an Apple criminal drama.
Djimon Hounsou is fresh off over a role in 20th Century Studios’ A King’s Man, which he played in December. Recent credits include A Quiet Place II, Charlie’s Angels, as well as Captain Marvel.
Bae Doona is indeed a South Korean actress most recognised in the United States for her collaborations with both the Wachowski brothers. She starred in the Netflix series Sense8 with her brothers, as well as Jupiter Ascending and Cloud Atlas. She was most recently seen in the Korean television series The Silent Sea.
Ray Fisher reprises his role as DC hero Cyborg in Rebel Moon, reuniting with Zack Snyder, with whom he previously collaborated on 2017’s Justice League and Snyder’s 2021 remake for HBO Max. He was recently seen in the ABC miniseries Women of the Movement about civil rights.
Rebel Moon had a protracted production schedule, from April to November, due to such a project’s grandiose nature as a two-part film.
