Joining the previously announced casting of Jovan Adepo and Wyatt Russell, the film will also star Jacob Anderson (GAME OF THRONES), Dominic Applewhite (THE KING’S SPEECH), Pilou Asbaek (GAME OF THRONES), Iain de Caestecker (Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.), John Magaro (THE BIG SHORT), Mathilde Ollivier (THE MISFORTUNES OF FRANCOIS JANE), and Bokeem Woodbine (FARGO).
