‘Rebel Moon’ Netflix Movie: Everything We Know So Far



‘Rebel Moon’ Netflix Movie: Everything We Know So Far

Zack Snyder is teaming up with Netflix once again to produce and direct two major sci-fi movies: Rebel Moon Part 1 and Part 2. The new movie(s) is described as an epic sci-fi adventure compared with Star Wars in terms of scope and scale. Here’s an updated look at what we can expect from Rebel Moon and everything we know.

Zack Snyder will direct and co-write the film and will reunite with many of his colleagues from past projects. The script for Rebel Moon will be co-written by Shay Hatten, who co-wrote Army of the Dead, and Kurt Johnstad, who worked on 300 with Snyder.

The Stone Quarry is the main production company behind the movie with Grand Electric also listed, which is Eric Newman’s production company that has an overall deal with Netflix.

Snyder commented on the inspiration for Rebel Moon in his THR interview:

“This is me growing up as an Akira Kurosawa fan, a Star Wars fan. It’s my love of sci-fi and a giant adventure.”

Snyder will produce Rebel Moon with his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder via the duo’s Stone Quarry along with longtime principal Wesley Coller. Eric Newman, who produced Snyder’s 2004 feature debut, Dawn of the Dead, is producing via his banner, Grand Electric.

Ori Marmur is the Netflix executive working on the project.

Here’s everything else we know about Zack Snyder’s and Netflix’s Rebel Moon:

Kristy Carlson serves as the casting director for Rebel Moon.

What’s the production status of Rebel Moon?

Netflix’s Rebel Moon entered production on April 18, 2022 and is expected to wrap on November 4 of the same year. Zack Snyder shared the first behind-the-scenes images from the very first days of filming, including the first look at Djimon Hounsou’s character:

We first got word via ProductionWeekly that filming will span from March 1, 2022, until August 31, 2022. However, a recent update from ProductionWeekly has revealed that the filming dates have been pushed forward by over a month, got underway on April 18th, 2022, and will come to an end by November 4th, 2022.

Recent entries suggest that a sequel of Rebel Moon has already been greenlit on Netflix. In issue 1284 of ProductionWeekly, they state that Parts I and II are set to be filmed back-to-back.

Production will take place in Inyo County, California in the United States. The popular tourist destination has been a popular filming destination, with over 400 Hollywood films reportedly filmed here over the years. It boasts that it’s the “largest Western backlot located in Lone Pine, CA.”

The budget for Rebel Moon hasn’t officially been announced, although our sources tell us the budget for part 1 is between $81 and $90 million.

Rebel Moon is being shot in Death Valley National Park, which is in Inyo, California. Notably, this was the filming location used for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi.

On June 7th, 2022, Snyder released some footage for a makeup test featuring some incredible costume designs.

On July 26th, Zack Snyder posted that they were on “Day 68” of filming alongside a clip of some behind-the-scenes. Snyder posted on the same day, saying they had custom-made lenses produced specifically for Rebel Moon.

In late August 2022, it was revealed by California’s Film & Television Tax Credit Program that Rebel Moon Part 2 had been awarded $16.6M in tax credits (on its budget of $83 million).

What’s the development history of Rebel Moon?

About a decade ago, Rebel Moon was originally a Star Wars pitch developed by Zack Snyder. It would be a more mature take on the universe created by George Lucas and didn’t move beyond meaningful conversations after The Walt Disney Co. acquired Lucasfilm in 2012. Ironically, as we saw years later, a slightly more mature take on the universe would be the very thing to revitalize the franchise in The Mandalorian.

At one point, Snyder and Newman, who was behind Narcos and Narcos Mexico, went down the path of making it into a series. Still, it was ultimately decided to make Rebel Moon a feature film, on which Snyder was actively working the past few years:

“I’ve spent the last two or three years building out this universe. Every corner has to be painted in. I’ve been doing designs, constantly drawing and really cultivating its fertile ground to make this world fully realized.”

Will Rebel Moon become a cinematic universe too?

As Snyder has already launched multiple Army of the Dead projects for Netflix, the question is, will Rebel Moon be the same? Snyder’s answer to that is “hopefully.”

“My hope is that this also becomes a massive IP and a universe that can be built out.”

With multiple parts reported above, it’s certainly set to receive the cinematic universe treatment.

What’s the Netflix release date for Rebel Moon?

Netflix hasn’t set a date for Rebel Moon yet, but considering the potential scope of the production, we shouldn’t hold our breath as films of this scale tend to take a few years to make. We would expect 2023 at the earliest.

2023 has kicked off with a couple of big cancelations, which signals a potentially rough year coming up, which many other players throughout Hollywood will share. Here’s a look at the 2023 cancelations!


The big-budget series from the creators of DARK had big expectations and big shoes to fill.

The mystery sci-fi show was one of Netflix’s most ambitious shows in years, using state-of-the-art technology and featuring an impressive ensemble cast.

Why was 1899 canceled?

Data provided to What’s on Netflix from European SVOD analytics company Digital i suggests that the completion rate was ultimately too low and likely wasn’t growing substantially. Their data suggests only around a third of people who started the show went onto finish the title.

Inside Job

The animated series Inside Job had been initially given a season 2 renewal order back in June 2022. Still, in January 2023, the creator confirmed rumors that Netflix had reversed the decision to renew.

In a statement on Twitter, the show’s creator Shion Takeuchi said:

I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to been able to share what was in store with you all.

He added, “To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”

Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?



Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?

Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett are the main attraction of the Netflix movie Lou as the two leading ladies. Janney plays a John Wick-esque character (complete with a beloved dog, but don’t worry, Jax makes it out alive!) while Smollett plays her neighbor, Hannah.

Lou is a hardened recluse living on the fringes of their secluded island, while Hannah is a single mother struggling to make ends meet to take care of her daughter, Vee.

A horrible storm hits the island, and someone kidnaps Hannah’s daughter in the midst of it, forcing her to turn to Lou for help. While searching for Vee, the two women are forced to confront some of the dark secrets from their past.

Even though Smollett and Janney are the stars, Lou has a great cast of actors that also includes Logan Marshall-Green and Greyston Holt (remember him as one of the hot werewolves from Bitten?).

Netflix movie Lou cast list

For those unfamiliar with Allison Janney, the powerhouse actress is a Hollywood staple. Throughout her many decades in the business, Janney has won countless accolades, including seven Primetime Emmy Awards, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award. She has also secured two Tony nominations.

Janney first rose to prominence playing C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. More recently, she starred as Bonnie Plunkett for nine seasons in the CBS sitcom Mom. Janney won her Oscar for I, Tonya, and has also appeared in projects like Masters of Sex, The Help, Juno, and many others. Next, she’ll star in the comedy miniseries Mrs. American Pie, the comedy film The People We Hate at the Wedding, and the sci-fi drama True Love.

Jurnee Smollett has been acting since she was a kid, with recurring roles in shows like Full House and On Our Own. But most people probably know her as Jess Merriweather in Friday Night Lights. The last few years have really helped cement Smollet’s status as a superstar. She played Dinah Lance/Black Canary in Birds of Prey and is reportedly going to reprise her role in a spinoff standalone movie at HBO Max.

Smollett also delivered an incredible performance in the short-lived but acclaimed HBO series Lovecraft Country and she recently starred opposite Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix thriller Spiderhead. Next, she’ll star in the courtroom drama film The Burial with Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones.

Completing the cast trifecta is Logan Marshall-Green, who plays the film’s primary antagonist, Philip. You might recall Marshall-Green playing Trey Atwood in The O.C. He also recently completed a stint on the ABC series Big Sky.

Here’s the complete cast list for the Netflix movie:

  • Allison Janney as Lou
  • Jurnee Smollett as Hannah
  • Logan Marshall-Green as Philip
  • Ridley Asha Bateman as Vee
  • Matt Craven as Sheriff Rankin
  • Greyston Holt as Chris
  • Daniel Bernhardt as Tony
  • RJ Fetherstonhaugh as Gerry
  • Andres Collantes as Deputy Torres
  • Marci T. House as Agent Lee
  • Toby Levins as Agent Hampton

Netflix movie Lou starts streaming on Friday, September 23.
