There has been some new people cast to the movie. Amy Seimetz from You’re Next, Jussie Smollett from Empire, Carmen Ejogo from The Pruge: Anarchy, and Callie Hernandez from Machete Kills, have all signed on for roles in the movie. Previously Michael Fassbender had signed on to the movie. Noomi Rapace will also reprise her role from Prometheus.
