Zack Snyder has found quite the happy home for himself and his production company Stone Quarry with Netflix, as he continues to develop new projects for the streamer. He is currently in development on an ambitious sci-fi project titled Rebel Moon, a Seven Samurai-inspired sci-fi film following a young woman bringing together warriors to stop an incoming invasion.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed more cast members for the upcoming film, following the main cast announcement back in February. The film adds Corey Stoll, Carey Elwes, Michiel Huisman, and Alfonso Herrera to its cast, with Elwes set to play the king of the galactic empire. Character details for the other actors remain under wraps at this time. Snyder has already brought together quite the cast that also consists of Sofia Boutella, Charlie Hunnam, Jena Malone, Djimon Hounsou, Ray Fisher, Bae Doona, Staz Nair, Rupert Friend, and Stuart Martin.
Production on Rebel Moon is set to begin later this month and will conclude in November. This film is intended to be the first part with pending success possibly resulting in a number of spin-offs. Netflix and Snyder hope to develop this into quite the franchise, similar to what they’re currently doing with Army of The Dead. He is currently developing multiple projects including a sequel to Army of The Dead, an animated prequel titled Lost Vegas, and a Norse mythology-based animated series Twilight of The Gods.
