British acting legend Patrick Malahide (“Game of Thrones”), Bond film and “Arrow” actor Colin Salmon, and rising “Roots” star Rege-Jean Page have joined the cast of the Peter Jackson-produced “Mortal Engines” for MRC & Universal Pictures.
Robert Sheehan, Hugo Weaving and Stephen Lang lead the cast in this adaptation of Philip Reeve’s young adult novel series set in a devastated future world where the world’s cities are run by engines and move about Earth, giving them the ability to prey on other smaller towns for resources.
The story follows a teenager named Tom Natsworthy who, along with a young woman from a territory known as the Outlands, uncovers a mystery that could change the world order. Jackson’s protege Christian Rivers is directing the project which is currently shooting in New Zealand.
