Fletcher and Irons portray two hit men who embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair come across a dynamic woman, played by Robbie, who may be more involved in the crime than they had originally suspected.
Pegg will next appear in Paramount Pictures’ “Star Trek Beyond” and Irons will soon be seen in ITV’s “Tutankhamun.” Fletcher starred in “Eddie the Eagle” and Myers is creating a series for HBO.
Pegg is represented by Dawn Sedgwick Management and UTA, while Irons by Tavistock Wood and UTA. Fletcher is represented by WME and Independent Talent Group, and Myers by Untitled Entertainment.
