Simon Pegg, Mike Myers, Max Irons (The Riot Club) and Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Kick-Ass) have joined Margot Robbie in the cast of Vaughn Stein’s noir thriller Terminal.
Terminal tells the story of two hit-men (Fletcher and Irons) as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair come across a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) who may be more involved than they had originally suspected.
It is being produced by David Barron of BeaglePug (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, The Legend Of Tarzan) Molly Hassell (Braven, The Trust) and HFG’s Arianne Fraser alongside Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Sophia Kerr and Robbie under their LuckyChap Entertainment banner.

Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson, George Waud, Shelley Madison, Charles Auty, Simon Williams, Delphine Perrier and Henry Winterstern.

Pegg will next appear in Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, while Irons will soon be seen in ITV’s Tutankhamun. Fletcher will next be seen in Eddie The Eagle for 20th Century Fox, and Myers is creating a new series for HBO.
