Zack Snyder‘s Rebel Moon is closer to reality than ever before. The next cinematic epic from the Legend of the Guardians: Owls of Ga’Hoole director has officially wrapped filming for its lead actress, Sofia Boutella, and is presumably drawing close to the finish line. Boutella shared the news herself on Instagram, posting an image of the clapper from her final day on set and revealing just how long she spent working on the project. According to the post’s caption, the Kingsman breakout spent 152 days in front of the camera, over the course of a full year. She closed her comments with a simple sentimental message, “I left a big piece of my heart up there,” followed by a series of moon-themed emojis that represent the film.
Rebel Moon revolves around Boutella‘s Kora, a young woman with a mysterious past who seeks out intergalactic warriors to help save a peaceful colony from a tyrannical Regent Balisarius. The movie began as a pitch to Lucasfilm, with Snyder intending for the story to take place in the Star Wars universe. However, the creative’s more mature vision for a galaxy far, far away never made it past the idea stage, and Snyder eventually redeveloped the premise as an original film. Rebel Moon also stars Ray Fisher, Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Anthony Hopkins, Cary Elwes, Corey Stoll, Jena Malone, Cleopatra Coleman, and Ed Skrein as part of its star-studded ensemble cast. It will be given a limited theatrical release before dropping directly on Netflix, similar to the recent distribution of Rian Johnson‘s Glass Onion.
Rebel Moon does not currently have a release date.
