‘Beasts of No Nation’ Star Abraham Attah Joins ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Beasts of No Nation” star Abraham Attah is joining the cast of Sony-Marvel’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” opposite Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Michael Keaton.

Jon Watts is directing from a script written by “Vacation” directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige are producing.

Other actors who have joined the cast over the last several weeks include Hannibal Buress, Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Zendaya and Tony Revolori.

Plot details are still guarded as is Attah’s character. Holland is playing Peter Parker and Tomei will portray Aunt May while Keaton is on board for the role of a villain.

Production is expected to start this summer with the film hitting theaters on July 7, 2017.

Attah, a native of Ghana, burst onto the scene with his portrayal of a child soldier in Netflix’s “Beasts of No Nation.” He won the best actor trophy at the Spirit Awards in February on the day before the Academy Awards, after winning the Marcello Mastroianni Award for best young actor at the Venice Film Festival.

He’s also attached to star in Shane Carruth’s drama “The Modern Ocean,” which was unveiled during the American Film Market in November, along with Anne Hathaway, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Chloe Grace Moretz, Holland, Asa Butterfield and Jeff Goldblum.

Attah is represented by Anonymous Content. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
