Melanie Laurent, best known to audiences as Soshanna in ‘Inglourious Basterds’, has been added to the cast of ‘6 Underground’. The film will be the latest mega budget action film from Michael Bay and Skydance Media. The major difference with this new project is that it will be the director’s first film to premier directly on Netflix. It was also announced that Payman Maadi (A Separation, The Night Of) has also been added to the cast. Maadi previously appeared in Bay’s ’13 Hours’.
‘6 Underground’ will be directed by Bay and based on an original concept by Deadpool writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick. Since it is written by Reese and Wernick it only makes sense that the film will star Ryan Reynolds. Also joining Reynolds, Laurent & Maadi in the cast are Dave Franco (The Disaster Artist), Corey Hawkins (BlacKkKlansman, Straight Outta Compton) and Adria Ajorna (True Detective). No release date is set yet.
I am very happy to see Melanie Laurent be in a big budget film and hopefully get well paid. She is an incredible actress and american mainstream audiences don’t get to see enough of her. Am I excited for Michael Bay’s newest film? Not really, but Bay has surprised me before and being on Netflix will definitely make it easier to check this out when it’s released.
