British-Zimbabwean actor Regé-Jean Page will soon star in a heist-thriller film on Netflix to be produced by writer-director Noah Hawley and The Russo Bros. Read on for the details about the upcoming movie.
After gaining global success through the period drama series, "Bridgerton," British-Zimbabwean actor Regé-Jean Page moves on to another exciting movie project.
Page's upcoming movie, which is yet to have a title, marks a big step for the charming 31-year-old actor as he takes his flourishing acting career to the next level.
Writer and director Noah Hawley, the TV creator behind the "Fargo" series, will produce the film with AGBO company founders Joe and Anthony Russo and Mike Larocca, who said in a statement:
"We are very happy to continue to fulfill that pledge by supporting this new film from Noah Hawley and Regé-Jean Page."
Page will executive produce the film with Angela Russo-Otstot. Plot details are still under wraps, but the group assures the movie is based on an original idea from Hawley.
Pages' breakout role was as Simon Bassett in "Bridgerton," where he starred opposite Phoebe Dynevor, who portrayed his wife, Daphne Bridgerton. Their mesmerizing performance turned them into sought-after stars in the entertainment industry.
In a recent interview, Page did not deny nor confirm the possibility of a cameo.
Following Page's instant fame via the Regency Era-themed series, the dashing actor went on to look for new opportunities outside the critically-acclaimed show.
The "Roots" actor previously shocked fans after announcing he will not return to the series. Speaking about his exit, Page said leaving the hit show that made him famous did not make him nervous because he knew it was going to happen.
Page also revealed he is no longer part of the show's WhatsApp group, saying he "respectfully exited" the chat group before getting into an awkward situation where they needed to remove him from the group.
However, fans found a glimmer of hope about Page reprising his role in the second season, which centers around Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma, played by Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley, respectively.
In a recent interview, Page did not deny nor confirm the possibility of a cameo. But whether or not he will have a cameo, it seems that his career is unstoppable now that he has more projects lined up for him.
Besides his unnamed heist-thriller film, Page will soon star in another Netflix feature, "The Gray Man," and in Paramount Pictures' film adaptation of "Dungeons and Dragons."
He has also been linked to the role of James Bond, currently played by Daniel Craig. Although playing the next spy is mere speculation, Page said it was one of the most flattering things he read online.
