The Wrap reports that Jordan and Teller will reteam with Gormican for an untitled heist picture. Brett Ratner and John Cheng will produce with Warner’s Scott Aversano. The film will be set in Macau and is said to be in line with comedic capers like Ocean’s Eleven. The reunion project has been in the works for a few weeks, but was not announced earlier since That Awkward Moment star Zac Efron will not be involved. The duo is also expected to star on screen together in Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot.
Deadline has word of Yung joining Gods of Egypt, the Egyptian mythology-inspired action-adventure picture that stars Butler as Set, the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, when Bek (Thwaites), a defiant mortal, enlists the aid of the powerful god Horus (Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against the evil overlord. Yung will star as the goddess, Hathor, the personification of joy, feminine love and motherhood. Chadwick Boseman stars as Thoth, the God of Wisdom, with Rush starring as Ra. Gods of Egypt opens February 12, 2016.
The Wrap also reports that Badge Dale is in negotiations for Spectral, a picture originally described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down. No further plot details are available at this time. George Nolfi and John Gatins wrote the script.
