Elsa Pataky, Luke Bracey To Star In Netflix Film ‘Interceptor’ From Director Matthew Reilly https://t.co/L9unhAliFz— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) March 4, 2021
Elsa Pataky (Fast & Furious) and Luke Bracey (Holidate) have signed on to star in Interceptor, an action drama by Netflix.
Matthew Reilly, the Australian action-thriller writer of Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves, will be the director. Reilly also co-wrote the script with Stuart Beattie.
The plot: An Army lieutenant must use her years of tactical training and military expertise to save the world when sixteen nuclear missiles are launched at the US. And defend her covert base as it goes under attack. (lol)
Per a statement, Reilly said : “...I wanted to bring that kind of rocket-fast, relentless, high-stakes storytelling to film, and so Interceptor was born. Elsa is just perfect as our lead: a strong, independent and determined woman who, in the face of overwhelming odds, just refuses to give up.”
Beattie will also be a producer, with Matthew Street and Michael Boughen for Ambience Entertainment. Chris Hemsworth, Kathy Morgan, Christopher Mapp, Robert Slaviero, and Peter D. Graves will also be executive producers.
Production is slated to take place in Sydney Australia.
