Robert De Niro and Jamie Foxx are set to join Brad Furman’s action movie ‘Tin Soldier.’
Scott Eastwood (The Fate of the Furious) and John Leguizamo (John Wick) have also joined the cast of the project which is due to commence filming in Greece next week.
The movie tells the story of The Bokushi (Foxx), who preaches to hundreds of veterans who have been drawn to the promise of protection and purpose under him. Surrounded by his devout military-trained followers, he has built an impenetrable fortress and amassed an arsenal of weapons. After several failed infiltration attempts, the government – in the form of military operative Emmanuel Ashburn (De Niro) – recruits Nash Cavanaugh (Eastwood), an ex-special forces asset, who was once a disciple of The Bokushi. Nash agrees to use his vulnerable past and insider knowledge of the enigmatic leader to finally get revenge on the man who took everything from him, including the love of his life.
