Rebel Moon, Zack Snyder’s next Netflix picture, has been in development for a while, but the cast is still being fleshed out. Anthony Hopkins will provide his voice to the sci-fi action film, according to the streaming service, which announced the news during Geeked Week.
Hopkins will play Jimmy, a sentient JC1435 mechanical battle robot and one-time protector of the deceased King, according to a response from the filmmaker himself.
Zack Snyder is directing a sci-fi fantasy actioner named ‘Rebel Moon’ for Netflix, as we previously reported. Anthony Hopkins has joined the cast of the picture, according to reports. Hopkins is the most recent addition to an ensemble cast that includes Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae, and Ray Fisher.
According to Deadline, the Oscar winner will portray Jimmy, who is described as “an absurdly intelligent JC1435 mechanical battle robot and one-time protector of the murdered King.” Cary Elwes, Stuart Martin, Corey Stoll, Alfonso Herrera, Michiel Huisman, Cleopatra Coleman, Ed Skrein, Rhian Rees, Fra Fee, Jena Malone, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, Sky Yang, and Staz Nair are among the other members of the cast.
Rebel Moon is claimed to take place on a peaceful colony far away in space. When the colony’s survival is endangered by an evil and powerful ruler, a young woman is dispatched to seek assistance from the warriors of other planets. The picture is the first to emerge from Snyder’s production business, The Stone Quarry Productions, and Netflix’s first-look agreement. The movie has yet to be given a release date.
