This Black Panther star has joined the cast of the new action thriller Heroine.
Actor Winston Duke, 31, has been signed by Paramount Players to star in its new exhilarating drama, which is being directed by Dan Casey from his own script and produced by Matt Kaplan through his Ace Entertainment production company, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The star rose to fame after he landed the role of the villainous M’Baku in Marvel’s Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. The actor has been linked to Jordan Peele’s new project Us, a follow-up to the Oscar-winning mystery thriller Get Out — in which Allison Williams and Daniel Kaluuya play an interracial couple who meet her parents for the first time only for Daniel’s character to make some disturbing discoveries about his girlfriend’s family.
The 39-year-old comedian has now announced the follow-up, due for release in March 2019 and set to star Winston along with Lupita Nyong’o — who also starred in Black Panther — and Elisabeth Moss of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
The “Big Mouth” star announced the new film by simply tweeting a poster with the title Us, which read: “a new nightmare from the mind of Academy Award winner Jordan Peele.”
Details of the new film are under wraps but the story is reportedly about two couples, one White and one Black.
