Idris Elba Joins Deadpool 2 Director’s Netflix Spy Thriller
Idris Elba is set to team up with Deadpool 2 and Bullet Train director David Leitch for a new spy thriller on Netflix titled Bang!
Idris Elba should team up with Deadpool 2 and High-speed train director David Leitch for a new spy thriller on Netflix titled Bang! Based on the comic book series by Matt Kindt and Wilfredo Torres, the story of Bang! centers on a terrorist cult that brainwashes its readers with a series of novels, sparking an apocalypse. This prompts the world’s most famous spy to be sent to hunt down and kill the perpetrator responsible.
Now it has been reported by THR that Elba will play a leading role in Bang!, which is currently in development at Netflix with Leitch attached to lead the project. The feature film adaptation will see original comic book writer Kindt co-write the screenplay with Zak Olkewicz (High-speed train). The announcement comes as part of a new multi-year creative partnership between Netflix and Dark Horse Entertainment. The film will be produced by Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse (The Umbrella Academy), with Leitch and Kelly McCormick for 87 North. Elba is also expected to come on board as the project’s co-producer.
Bang! marks Elba and Leitch’s first collaboration since 2018 fast furious spin-off movie Hobbs & Shaw, in which Elba played the charismatic main villain Braxton Lore. With the addition of movies like James Gunn The Suicide Squad and the western 2021 The more they fall, the British actor has shown keen interest in appearing in action-packed projects in recent years. It seems that Bang! will most certainly continue this trend, with filmmaker and former stuntman Leitch proving to be an influential modern-day action director. With talent displayed on both sides of the camera, Bang! promises a cinematic treat for audiences when the film finally drops on Netflix.
