REBEL MOON Adds Sir Anthony Hopkins As Director Zack Snyder Shares Stunning New Character Designs

As part of Netflix's Geeked Week reveals, Zack Snyder's has shared some incredible new character designs for his upcoming sci-fi adventure Rebel Moon, which has now added Anthony Hopkins to its cast.

Zack Snyder's Rebel Moon has gained the services of a true acting icon, with Sir Anthony Hopkins joining the already impressive cast of the Justice League director's upcoming sci-fi adventure.

The two-time Academy Award-winner will provide the voice of Jimmy, "an impossibly sentient JC1435 mechanized battle robot and one-time defender of the slain King."

Snyder took to social media to share a first look at Jimmy, as well as some brief makeup test footage featuring a mysterious - and awesome-looking - female alien.

It was recently announced that Ed Skrien (Deadpool, Alita: Battle Angel) is set to replace Rupert Friend, who was forced to part ways with the movie due to a scheduling conflict. Details in this role are under wraps, but his character is believed to be the main antagonist.

Cleopatra Coleman (Dopesick), Fra Fee (Hawkeye), and Rhian Rees (Nope) are also on board, joining Djimon Hounsou, Cary Elwes, Corey Stoll, Michiel Huisman, Alfonso Herrera, Charlie Hunnam, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, Stuart Martin, Jena Malone, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, and Sky Yang

Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond, Atomic Blonde, The Mummy) will play the lead: "A young woman with a mysterious past who seeks out warriors from neighbouring planets to help a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy take a stand against the tyrannical Regent Balisarius."

Snyder has often said that if he was given the opportunity to helm a Star Wars movie, he'd pay homage to the great Akira Kurosawa with an epic space adventure inspired by Seven Samurai, and it sounds like he'll get the chance to tell his story in a different galaxy far, far away. Snyder also co-wrote the project with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad, and will produce alongside Deborah Snyder, Wesley Coller for The Stone Quarry.

You can check out the full synopsis below.

“A peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate people dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them make a stand.”
