Social media is a great place to discover details for upcoming and currently in production films. Cast and crew sometimes post photos from the set giving us some insight into the productions.
The image includes a cast list that mentions that Rinko Kikuchi is returning for the film along with Karl Urban being a new cast member playing a character named Quan. It also mentions that John Boyega‘s character is named Jake, Scott Eastwood is playing a character named Lambert, and Callie Spaeny is Amara.
There’s also a mystery character Liwen or Uwen Shao which could be played by Jing Tian or Max Zhang.
UPDATE: Karl Urban is seemingly denying his involvement but it wouldn’t be the first time an actor tried to keep a role hush-hush.
Confirmation from Urban himself! https://t.co/deDZiG2HXI
