This is just the most recent fantastic-sounding role Pedro Pascal has landed this year, after news broke that the actor would be joining Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” sequel and the lesbian journey movie “Drive- Away Dolls”. The actor has been on an absolute roll, earning wide acclaim for his role as gruff apocalypse survivor Joel in “The Last Of Us” and continues to headline the most reliable “Star Wars” show on Disney+, “The Mandalorian.” “. However, Pascal’s big year has truly been a couple of big years in a row, as he too starred opposite Nicholas Cage in “The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent” in 2022.
The “Barbarian” team (Zach Cregger, Roy Lee, JD Lifshitz and Raphael Margules) will produce “Weapons,” with Cregger on board after closing an eight-figure deal to write and direct, according to THR. Miri Yoon will also produce the film New Line. “Weapons” doesn’t have a release date, but if it’s a kaleidoscopic story in the vein of “Magnolia,” we hope there are more casting announcements to come.
