As production continues on Red Sonja, the film looks to be experiencing a bit of a shake-up with its cast. Deadline reports that Rhona Mitra is joining the production, as Oliver Trevena has been forced to exit the project. Details regarding who Mitra is playing are unavailable, but Trevena is said to have left the project over scheduling conflicts. The news comes just days after Millennium Media revealed the first official look at Matilda Lutz as the titular character.
Mitra has appeared in films such as Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, Game Over, Man!, and Skylines. While on the television side, she’s starred in shows like Supergirl, where she played Mercy Graves, and The Strain.
Starring alongside Lutz in the film are Wallis Day, Robert Sheehan as Draygan, Michael Bisping as Hawk, Martyn Ford as General Karlak, Eliza Matengu as Amarak, Manal El-Feitury and Katrina Durden. M.J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) is directing the film from a screenplay penned by Joey Soloway (Transparent) and Tasha Huo (Netflix’s Tomb Raider).
As of now, the film does not have a set release date.
