AceShowbiz - Simon Pegg and Mike Myers are joining Margot Robbie in upcoming thriller "Terminal", according to THR. Max Irons ("The Riot Club", "Woman in Gold") and Dexter Fletcher ("Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", "Kick-Ass") are also on board the project directed by Vaughn Stein from his own screenplay.
"Terminal", which is currently shooting in Hungary, follows two hitmen (Fletcher and Irons) as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a large paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair discover that a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) may be more involved than they had originally suspected.
David Barron of Beagle Pug ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II"), Molly Hassell ("The Trust", "Barely Lethal") and LuckyChap Entertainment's Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Sophia Kerr and Robbie will serve as producers. John Jencks, D. Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson, George Waud, Shelley Madison, Charles Auty, Simon Williams, Delphine Perrier and Henry Winterstern, meanwhile, are exec producing.
Highland Film Group arranged financing with Ingenious Media, Ruyi Media and Miscellaneous Entertainment. Highland is also handling international sales, having first introduced the project to buyers in Berlin. CAA is looking after U.S. rights.
Pegg will next be seen in "Star Trek Beyond", Irons will star on ITV's "Tutankhamun", and Fletcher worked behind the lens as director in "Eddie the Eagle". Myers, meanwhile, is creating a new series for HBO.
