Deadline has announced two exciting additions to the upcoming untitled film from director David O. Russell; Rami Malek (Mr. Robot, Bohemian Rhapsody) and Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy) will be joining the ensemble in currently unknown roles. Saldana and Malek join the previously announced Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and John David Washington.
The film sees a couple of reunions. Bale is re-teaming with Russell, who directed and wrote the 2013 film American Hustle. The untitled project will also be the second film starring Bale and Saldana, who co-starred in Out of the Furnace.
At this time, plot details for the film are being kept under wraps. We do know that the film is based on an original idea from Russell and is currently in production. Russell will write and direct, and New Regency’s Arnon Milchan produces alongside Matthew Budman and Anthony Katagas.
Malek, who earned the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in Bohemian Rhapsody, will return to our screens soon in the upcoming thriller The Little Things (January 29) starring opposite Denzel Washington. He also steps into the lead villain role Safin in the next James Bond film No Time to Die (April 2). Saldana’s next projects include Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (as Gamora) and The Adam Project, where she joins Ryan Reynolds and Jennifer Garner.
Stay tuned for more updates on Russell’s film as they become available.
