Anthony Hopkins (Armageddon Time), a two-time Academy Award winner, has signed on to Rebel Moon, a Netflix sci-fi adventure picture directed by Zack Snyder (Army of the Dead).
Rebel Moon is set in a peaceful colony on the outskirts of the galaxy that is threatened by the despotic Regent Balisarius’ army, prompting the tyrant to despatch a young woman (Sofia Boutella) with a strange background to seek out warriors from surrounding worlds to assist them in making a stand. Jimmy, a seemingly sentient JC1435 mechanical battle robot and one-time defender of the deceased King, will be voiced by Hopkins.
As previously stated, the picture will star Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, Stuart Martin, Cary Elwes, Corey Stoll, Michiel Huisman, Alfonso Herrera, Ed Skrein, Cleopatra Coleman, Fra Fee, Rhian Rees, Jena Malone, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, Sky Yang, and Staz Nair.
The Stone Quarry Productions, which is owned by Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, and Wesley Coller, has partnered with Netflix for the first time to produce Rebel Moon.
With Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead) and Kurt Johnstad, Snyder developed the script based on his and Kurt Johnstad’s (300) story. Snyder is also collaborating on The Stone Quarry with Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller, as well as Grand Electric with Eric Newman. Bergen Swanson, Hatten, Johnstad, and Sarah Bowen are executive producers for Grand Electric, and Netflix’s VP of Studio Film Ori Marmur is in charge of the project.
