Netflix vs. Star Wars

The means are apparently there for this film because the director as well as the SVOD platform Netflix are betting heavily on this project thought to be a challenger to Star Wars… just that.
Focus on Zack Snyder
If that name means nothing to you, let us introduce you to artist Zack Snyder. His career began in 2004 with Army of the Dead (Dawn of the Dead from its original title). He made himself known to the general public a few years later with the films 300, Sucker Punch and watch men as well as for his involvement in the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) with in particular man of steel (2013), Batman v Superman (2016) and finally the Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021).
A galactic cast
The casting of the main actors and actresses has been communicated on Zack Snyder’s Twitter account. Charlie Hunnaman actor best known for his roles in Pacific Rim and The Lost City of Z, but especially the Sons of Anarchy series, joins the ranks of the director. Djimon Hounsourewarded on multiple occasions for his performances as actors, and having notably played in Gladiator and Blood Diamond, is also on the trip.
Ray Fisherthe interpreter of Cyborg in Justice League, also participates in the project, and the same goes for the South Korean actress Bae Doo-na whose features evoke the character of Soon from the Sense8 series. Finally, the artist Sofia Boutella, highlighted for her voice work on Azur and Asmar as well as her role in Kingsman: Secret Service, completes the team. Rebel Moon thus acquires a five-star cast, and for good reason, Zack Snyder is aiming high with his next film.
A first glimpse of the universe
Rebel Moon is a science fiction movie co-written by Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead, John Wick) and Kurt Johnstad (300, Atomic Blonde), two screenwriters who have proven themselves in the industry. During an interview with our colleagues from HollywoodReporter, Zack Snyder reveals his interest in the timeless works of Akira Kurosawa and George Lucas (Star Wars), as well as his pronounced taste for great science fiction adventures. The Netflix-funded project is inspired by the work of these directors and aims to echo these multiple influences.
The story of Rebel Moon begins in a peaceful space colony located at the edge of the galaxy. While the latter is targeted by the tyrannical Regent Balisarius and her troops, a young woman goes in search of warriors powerful enough to put an end to this threat.
