I do not really remember which film it was, but I was in full projection at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival when I received an urgent text and hurried out of the theater to announce the news that a young actress is named Storm Reid had landed the lead role in Ava DuVernayS A ride in time. I remember thinking that the 12 years of slavery Star had a very memorable name, and it was a good thing, as I felt I was writing it for a very long time.
A ride in time may not have been so hot, but Reid's career could not be hotter at the moment. She recently held a lead role in Blumhouse. The invisible man, his other movie Blumhouse, Do not let gohas just landed a distribution deal in movie theaters and has appeared in two of the hottest shows this summer – HBO's ### Euphoria and the famous Netflix series from DuVernay When they see us. And now, the 16-year-old star has landed another large-scale project because she was cast as Idris ElbaThe daughter of James GunnS The's teaming suicide.
Reid and Elba join new franchisees John Cena, David Dastmalchian and Daniela Melchior in the movie DC, which brings back Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Viola Davis. The details of the parcel are kept secret, as is the identity of the character of the Elbe.
Elba was originally interpreted as Deadshot, effectively replacing Will SmithHowever, according to sources, Smith was surprised and a little disappointed that Elba neglected to reach out and obtain his blessing before accepting the role. After all, even someone as busy as Will Smith knows it's always a good idea to leave the door open for a potential return. It's hard to do when the role has already been redone. Elba then spoke to Gunn and both found a new role for the award-winning actor at the Golden Globes – a role that remains mysterious. However, as you remember from our exclusivity on the new Suicide team Elba-as-Deadshot would become the father figure of Ratcatcher of Melchior. I wonder if Ratcatcher will not have / no longer need a father figure, and these emotional beats are transferred to the new character of the Elbe.
Charles Roven (The black Knight) is among those producing the big-budget anti-hero film, which is scheduled to begin production in Atlanta in September. Warner Bros. must release the film on August 6, 2021.
Reid, who also appeared in the indie gem little seen Sleight, will shoot The invisible man before moving on to The suicide brigade. She is represented by CAA and Management 360, and TheWrap has announced the news of her casting.
