Simon Pegg, Mike Myers Join Margot Robbie in 'Terminal' (Exclusive)
Max Irons and Dexter Fletcher also have boarded the noir thriller, being directed by Vaughn Stein.
Simon Pegg is putting the sci-fi down for a second, having boarded noir thriller Terminal alongside Margot Robbie.
Mike Myers, Max Irons (The Riot Club, Woman in Gold) and Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Kick-Ass) also have joined the film, which is currently shooting in Hungary and is being directed by Vaughn Stein from his own screenplay. David Barron of Beagle Pug (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2) and Molly Hassell (The Trust, Barely Lethal) will produce alongside Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Sophia Kerr and Robbie under their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.
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.
Highland Film Group arranged financing with Ingenious Media, Ruyi Media and Miscellaneous Entertainment. Exec producers are John Jencks, D. Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson, George Waud, Shelley Madison, Charles Auty, Simon Williams, Delphine Perrier and Henry Winterstern.
Highland is also handling international sales, having first introduced the project to buyers in Berlin. CAA is looking after U.S. rights.
After his secretive role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Pegg will have a far more central part in his other major sci-fi franchise installation, Star Trek Beyond, which he also co-wrote.
Pegg is represented by Dawn Sedgwick Management and UTA, while Irons is repped by Tavistock Wood and UTA. Fletcher is represented by WME and Independent Talent Group and Myers by Untitled Entertainment.
