Production has kicked off on Zack Snyder’s sci-fi adventure story “Rebel Moon” with the filmmakers releasing a tweet with several photos confirming his big space opera is very much happening.
Sofia Boutella, Ray Fisher, Djimon Hounsou, Charlie Hunnam, Rupert Friend, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, Corey Stoll, Michiel Huisman, Alfonso Herrera, and Cary Elwes star in a film based on the “Star Wars” tune that Snyder brought to Lucasfilm a decade ago and serves as his love letter to the franchise and the work of Akira Kurosawa.
This story tells of a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that is threatened by a cruel regent. A desperate colony sends a young woman (Boutella) with a mysterious past in search of warriors from a neighboring planet to help them survive.
Snyder co-wrote the script with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad with the film aiming to launch a new franchise IP.
