Three very different actors at three completely different points of their careers have all signed on for a new noir thriller from first-time director Vaughn Stein. Deadline reports that Mike Myers and Simon Pegg are set to join the Margot Robbie in the film entitled Terminal.
Myers has been pretty silent since 2008’s critical and commercial waste of time The Love Guru. Besides a cameo in Inglourious Basterds, he’s generally kept himself off screen to provide the voice of Shrek. The former top draw is apparently considering a return to the Austin Powers franchise, but a left-field choice like Terminal seems like it would do better as a career restarter.
Pegg, meanwhile, is enjoying a steady career of highs as of late, with his involvement in the Mission: Impossible and Star Trek franchises, plus a writing credit on this year’s Star Trek Beyond and a role in Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated Ready Player One. Robbie is on the other end of the spectrum, poised for a breakout in this summer’s Suicide Squad and The Legend of Tarzan.
All three will come together for Terminal, set to star Max Irons (The Riot Club) and Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) as two hit-men who take a risky job from a mysterious but high-paying client. Things get complicated when they encounter a Annie (Robbie), a “dynamic woman” who is more connected to their job than they know. It’s not currently known whom Myers or Pegg will portray.
