The first movie Zack Snyder did for Netflix was a hit. Following the success of Army of the Dead, Zack and Deborah Snyder’s The Stone Quarry signed a first-look deal with Netflix and they soon named Rebel Moon as Snyder’s next feature.
The film has gathered quite an ensemble of acting talent for Rebel Moon. Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Ray Fisher and Doona Bae have been added to the cast. The film already had Sofia Boutella as the star. Jena Malone, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi and Sky Yang are also set to complete the cast.
The film is set in a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy. This colony finds itself under the threat by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius. A young woman with a mysterious past is dispatched to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand against the Tyrant.
Snyder will direct the film. He is also co-writing it with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad. The story is by Synder and Johnstad. For The Stone Quarry, Deborah Synder, Wesley Coller, and Zack Snyder will produce while Grand Electric, Eric Newman will produce. Sarah Bowen and Bergen Swanson will executive produce for Grand Electric alongside Johnstad and Hatten.
Hunnam began his career early as he could be seen in the groundbreaking Queer as Folk (1998) for Channel 4. He starred in FX’s Sons of Anarchy which made him a star. His film career has seen him star in Guy Ritchie’s The Gentleman as well as Netflix’s Triple Frontier. He is currently in production for Apple TV+’s highly anticipated series Shantaram.
Fisher is reuniting with Snyder. He was tapped for the role of Cyborg in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Hounsou just starred in the box office hit A Quiet Place Part II.
