In an interview with Cinemablend, Star Wars sequel star John Boyega has again indicated he is happy to see the back of such a big franchise, stating that such big productions are:
“…kind of like luxury jail sometimes for an actor when you want to do something else.”
Well he’s certainly moving in different circles now with a powerhouse turn in Steve McQueen’s Small Axe and is currently shooting They Cloned Tyrone with Jamie Foxx. After this he is rocking up alongside none other than Robert De Niro.
They will co-star in The Formula for Netflix. The movie will follow a Formula One racing talent who falls foul of nefarious people and is left with no choice but to become a getaway driver to save his family.
Gerard McMurray (Burning Sands, The First Purge) is directing, writing and producing. De Niro will also produce alongside Jane Rosenthal and Berry Welsh.
