Tom Hopper, known for his role in Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy (I mean I remember him in that BBC series Merlin all those years ago, man I loved that programme!) has signed on to the cast for the Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard.

The film will also see the returning faces of Samuel L Jackson, Ryan Reynolds, and Salma Hayek, plus Patrick Hughes again as director. Frank Grillo (Crossbones in the MCU, remember him?) has also been announced in the film. Interestingly enough it will also star Morgan Freeman, citing the first time he and Jackson have starred in a movie together. Who would have thought that eh?!

The film will pull Jackson, Reynolds, and Hayek’s characters onto the side of the good guys with Hopper playing another bodyguard in the film. Hopper has appeared in many popular series including as recurring characters in Game of Thrones and Black Sails, and the one I remember him appearing in was in Matt Smith’s first episode of Doctor Who! How times have changed for Hopper.

The film is set to be released in 2020 although no official date has been released.
