UPDATED: Jared Leto And Henry Cavill To Star In Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon

Actors Jared Leto and Henry Cavill are to star in director Zack Snyder’s newest Netflix sci-fi movie Rebel Moon. This is according to WhatsOnNetflix.


Original article as follows:

Zack Snyder is one of the most reputable directors and creators for films or series.

He takes projects to an entirely wonderful spin whether science fiction, adventure, heroic or anti-heroic genre of movies,

Needless to say, both Leto and Cavill have worked with Zack Snyder for his version on the Justice League.

Those kinds of projects would really test the mettle of cast and director.

And most likely, Zack has already seen the match of his upcoming characters with the two.

Indeed, when the director knows the ins and outs of a character, he would already have someone in mind to play it.

A lot of people from Zack Snyder’s previous projects are coming on board with him for this.

Not only will Zack Snyder direct and produce but he will also co-write the film with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad.

Shay Hatten is also his co-writer for Army of the Dead.

While Kurt Johnstad worked worked with Snyder for 300.

Snyder with his wife Deborah and Wesley Coller will produce the movie through Stone Quarry.

Joining them is Grand Electric’s Eric Newman who produced Snyder’s debut, Dawn of the Dead.

This actually gives you an idea that Zack is sharing this project with people whom he knows will be able to understand and deliver what he wants done.

Interestingly enough, it is not a secret that Zack Snyder pitched the concept and story of Rebel Moon for Star Wars.

Snyder tells in an interview

This is me growing up as an Akira Kurosawa fan, a Star Wars fan, It’s my love of sci-fi and a giant adventure. My hope is that this also becomes a massive IP and a universe that can be built out.

Developing Rebel Moon into an new intellectual property movie or series franchise is quite a tall order.

Zack Snyder has proven time and again that he can do it.

As he says, he has been working on this project for years at every detail.

Initial concept photo is out and it does echo the Star Wars feel.

Alongside with the report was the project’s plot which state:

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 make a stand.

A few of the official characters for the project are:

  • Kora is the lead character, described as athletic with good martial arts skills.
  • Noble is the commanding and brutal character to the point of being sadistic.
  • Gunnar is the handsome, earnest and dependable character.
  • Balisarius is the ferocious cunning warrior.
  • Aris is a soldier with remaining innocence and compassion.
  • Devin is a soldier in conflict about his duty.
  • Sam is a kind, gentle-spirited and welcoming Scandinavian/Northern European.

Joining Leto and Cavill are Sofia Boutella (The Mummy 2017, Atomic Blonde, Kingsman: The Secret Service 2014), Billy Crudup (Watchmen 2009, The Morning Show 2019) and Ray Fisher (Zack Snyder’s Justice League, The Flash).

Sofia Boutella is Kora and is currently the only actor with the released character.

We can look at the initial characters list to guess which one Jared Leto and Henry Cavill may portray.

This project is already promising a wild ride that season 2 is reported to be in development stages as well.

As Ray Fisher comes in, it really gives the feel of a Justice League reunion.

At this point, I may think so.
