Zack Snyder’s upcoming Netflix film Rebel Moon just added quite the group of actors to the cast. Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Ray Fisher, and Jena Malone are among the most recent additions while Doona Bae, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, and Sky Yang will also join already-cast Sofia Boutella. Notable here is the reuniting of Snyder with Fisher after the latter’s praised emotional arc in Zack Snyder’s Justice League and subsequent fallout with Warner Bros. over allegations of racism and more. Rebel Moon is a sci-fi project born out of what was originally a pitch from Snyder for a Star Wars film. Per Deadline, the film “is set in a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius. They dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand the Tyrant.” Snyder will direct from a script he co-wrote with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad. Rebel Moon is part of Snyder’s overall deal with Netflix.
