Due to the fact that the film is in it’s early stages, there isn’t much to discuss. However, it is known that Boyega will be playing the son of the late Stacker Pentecost (who, of course was played by Idris Alsba). He’ll also be joining Cailee Spaeny who is set to be play the female lead of the movie . Also in the film will be Scott Eastwood, Adria Arjona, Mackenyu Maeda, Jing Tian, and Levi Meaden.
Before production started, Guillermo del Toro was set to direct the film, but issues caused him to fall back as producer. This opened the door for Steven S. DeKnight to step in and take the helm. Hopefully this photo is proof that the film has finally found some stability and any fear of further cancellations can go out the door.
