It looks like this will be a much closer to the source interpretation than Reynold’s last outing as the Merc with the Mouth.
THR tells us that former MMA star Gina Carano has joined the cast as well, playing a character named Angel Dust. Whether this is the same Angel Dust from the Morlocks isn’t known as of this time. The report also states that T.J. Miller is on board to play an as yet unnamed character, and that Colossus will make an appearance in the film but it isn’t known if it will be Daniel Cudmore again.
THR has also announced that Cinemax has ordered Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta’s Outcast to series. Robert Kirkman will executive produce the ten episode first season with Chris Black, Sharon Tal Yguado, Sue Naegle and David Alpert. Many roles have been cast so far, including Patrick Fugit as lead Kyle Barnes and Philip Glenister as preacher Reverend Anderson. Hernon Lopez, FIC president and CEO, said, “‘Outcast’ is an ambitious series and Adam Wingard has directed a powerful pilot. I am very proud of the work that Robert, Sharon, and team have put together.” It is still unknown when to expect Outcast on our screens.
