Deadline reports that newcomer Shioli Kutsuna has joined the cast of David Leitch’s Deadpool 2 in an unnamed but key role. The Australian-born Japanese actress is likely best known for her role in the Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven and her big Hollywood project is in the Japanese WWII era thriller The Outsider alongside Jared Leto.
She’ll join new additions Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, and Jack Kesy.
Omega Underground recently discovered that Calvary’s Killian Scott and Dunkirk’s Charley Palmer Rothwell have both auditioned for a role as well.
Production is expected to begin later this month with a release date of June 1st, 2018.
