This December will mark the supposed last time John Boyega will appear in a Star Wars film as the Rise Of Skywalker will finally launch in theaters nationwide. Boyega who has starred as Finn in the epic series is already looking to the future as Variety is reporting that Boyega will star next in the new action-thriller Rebel Ridge from director Jeremy Saulnier who is best known for Green Room and Hold The Dark. The film will premiere exclusively on Netflix.
Per Variety: Similarly to Saulnier’s 2013 crime drama “Green Room,” his upcoming movie will be a high-velocity thriller that explores systemic American injustices through bone-breaking action sequences, suspense and dark humor.
They had me at bone breaking action sequences so I’m immediately intrigued. Boyega is no stranger to action having starred in the last three Star Wars films as well as Pacific Rim Uprising.
Saulnier recently completed work on another Netflix action film Hold The Dark which Jeffrey Wright and Alexander Skarsgard so it looks like this film is on good hands.
Rebel Ridge is in the early stages so we have a long wait to see what transpired but as always, keep it locked and loaded right here for more to follow!
