Octavia Spencer, Jonny Weston and Suki Waterhouse recently joined the cast, with Jai Courtney, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort also onboard to reprise their roles. Kim will play Jack Kang in the pic.
The film will be directed by Robert Schwentke from a screenplay by Brian Duffield and Akiva Goldsman.
Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher will produce the film through their Red Wagon Entertainment banner along with Pouya Shahbazian. Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman are executive producing through their Mandeville Films banner along with Neil Burger and Barry Waldman.
