Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, and Mike Myers Join Noir Thriller TERMINAL
Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, and Mike Myers...how's that for an unlikely trio? THR reports that the three actors have joined a noir thriller called Terminal (which is not, as I hoped, a remake of the similarly-named Tom Hanks movie) for first time writer/director Vaughn Stein. Dexter Fletcher (who also occasionally directs, as he did with Eddie The Eagle) and Max Irons (The Host, Red Riding Hood) are also on board to appear in the film.
Terminal follows two hit men (Fletcher and Irons) as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a large paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair discover that a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) may be more involved than they had originally suspected.
Myers has to be playing the "mysterious employer," right? Either way, it'll be cool to see him acting again. He hasn't appeared on the big screen since his small role in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.
Stein worked his way up the Hollywood ladder from a production assistant to an assistant director and a bunch of odd jobs in between, so it's cool that he's been able to secure such a talented cast for his first movie. I have to assume that there's more to this film than just the simple logline we have available to us, because otherwise I find it hard to believe these actors would have come on board. Color me excited for this one.
