GREEN BOOK Star Mahershala Ali To Star in New Sci-Fi Film SOVEREIGN
Mahershala Ali recently took home an Oscar for his role in the film Green Book, but he also played the villain in the fantastic film Alita: Battle Angel, which is currently in theaters. The talented actor is now set to star in yet another sci-fi film project called Sovereign.
There aren’t really any details on the film other than the fact that it will be a sci-fi movie and it will be directed by Marc Munden (Utopia) from a script written by A Quiet Place scribes Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. The movie is also being produced by Stranger Things director and producer Shawn Levy.
Nick Meyer, eOne’s President of Film had this to say in a statement:
“We have long loved this project and have been patiently waiting until we found the right leading actor, which we no doubt have found in the incredibly talented Mahershala Ali. The cast is clearly shaping up well and is backed by a creative team with a proven track record and the ability to tell a story that will resonate with audiences around the world.”
Levy and his producing team added:
“Much like our film Arrival, this project is for us a dream pairing of an inspired screenplay with a truly visionary director. Marc Munden has been an exceptional collaborator in shaping this singular story into one that jumps off the page and with the phenomenally talented Mahershala Ali at the heart of this film, we feel we now have the dream creative partners to tell a story that audiences won’t forget.”
There’s a talented team of people behind this movie, and while we don’t know what it’s about, I imagine that they team will deliver something special and cool.
