Mélanie Laurent (Beginners, Inglorious Bastards) and Payman Maadi (The Night Of, A Separation) have joined Ryan Reynolds on Skydance Media and Netflix’s 6 Underground.
Michael Bay directs the action film from an original idea by Deadpool writers and executive producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Production is scheduled to begin later this month in time for a worldwide release in 2019.
Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce 6 Underground along with Bay and Ian Bryce.
César Award winner Laurent heads to Toronto with her English-language directorial debut Galveston starring Elle Fanning and Ben Foster.
She will next be seen in Chris Weitz’s Operation Finale, which opens on August 29 in the US.
Skydance produced Netflix shows Grace And Frankie and Altered Carbon.
