Machine Gun Kelly Joins Sandra Bullock in Thriller ‘Bird Box’

Colson Baker — aka Machine Gun Kelly — has joined the ensemble of the Netflix thriller “Bird Box,” starring Sandra Bullock.

“Patti Cake$” breakout Danielle Macdonald, Trevante Rhodes, Jacki Weaver, Sarah Paulson, “Alita: Battle Angel” star Rosa Salazar, and Lil Rel Howery are also on board.

Susanne Bier is directing “Bird Box” from a script by “Arrival” writer Eric Heisserer.

The film follows a woman and a pair of children who are blindfolded then forced to walk through a post-apocalyptic setting along a river. Baker will play Felix in the pic.

Dylan Clark is producing “Bird Box” with Chris Morgan and Clayton Townsend. The movie was developed by Scott Stuber at Universal, before he moved to Netflix to head its feature film division.

Baker will appear opposite Vera Farmiga in Rupert Wyatt’s sci-fi film “Captive State.” His other acting credits include the independent features “Punks Dead,” “Nerve” starring Dave Franco and Emma Roberts, and “The Land” with Erykah Badu, in which he served as co-executive producer. He was also handpicked by Cameron Crowe for a regular role on the Showtime series “Roadies.”

Baker is represented by ICM Partners, EST 19XX, and Felker, Toczek and Levine.
