Mike Myers and Simon Pegg have joined the cast of Terminal, a noir thriller written and directed by Vaughn Stein. Dexter Fletcher (Kick-Ass) and Max Irons (The Riot Club) have also joined the cast, which consisted only of Margot Robbie until recently.
Deadline reports that “Terminal tells the story of two hit-men (Fletcher and Irons) as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair come across a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) who may be more involved than they had originally suspected.”
This is Stein’s first feature-length writing and directing gig after assistant directing a list of acclaimed films like The Danish Girl, World War Z and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Last year, his short Yussef Is Complicated won the People’s Choice Award for Best Short Film at TIFF Kids International Film Festival. Terminal is being produced by David Barron, also of the Harry Potter franchise, Molly Hassell (The Trust), Arianne Fraser and LuckyChap Entertainment. There is no word on a release date for the film yet.
This will be Mike Myers’ first live-action flick since a small appearance in Inglourious Basterds in 2009. He signed a contract with HBO for a new series, but there has been no word on the project since early last year. There have also been rumors of a fourth Austin Powers movie, but for now, Myers has just been “kicking around ideas” with director Jay Roach.
Margot Robbie most recently became the new Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, which hits theaters later this summer. Simon Pegg can be seen in Star Trek Beyond and also has a writing credit on the third movie of the rebooted franchise to be released in July.
