Natalia Reyes is casting shadows…
The 35-year-old Colombian actress will star opposite Mark Strong, Jahleel Kamara, Marvin “Krondon” Jones III, Yoson An and Ed Quinn in Lionsgate’s action-thriller Shadow Force, from director Joe Carnahan.
The film has entered production in Colombia.
The actors join an ensemble led by Kerry Washington and Omar Sy, which also includes Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Cliff “Method Man” Smith.
The film penned by Leon Chills and Carnahan follows Kyrah (Washington) and Isaac (Sy), who were once the leaders of a multinational special forces group called Shadow Force. They broke the rules by falling in love, and in order to protect their son, they go underground. With a large bounty on their heads, and the vengeful Shadow Force hot on their trail, one family’s fight becomes all-out war.
Details as to the roles the film’s newest cast members will play are being kept under wraps. But Stephen “Dr.” Love is producing via his company Made with Love Media—which has an overall deal with Lionsgate—alongside Simpson Street’s Washington and Pilar Savone, and Sterling K. Brown for Indian Meadows Productions.
Shadow Force has received approval to obtain the CINA incentive (Audiovisual Investment Certificate), granted by the Colombian government and administered by Proimágenes Colombia: a tax discount equivalent to 35% of the expenditure on audiovisual services in the country.
Reyes was most recently seen in the leading role of Dani in Terminator: Dark Fate — prior to that, starring in Ciro Guerra’s Birds of Passage, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival as an official Fortnight selection.
Additionally, she starred in Peter Webber’s Pickpockets and in Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas, one of Colombia and Netflix Latin America’s most popular series.
