If there is one thing that Netflix can do, it is that it can make one hell of a cast. Over the years, not only has Netflix jump-started the careers of many actors, but in fact, it has been able to get many huge names to star in their films. And now it looks like Netflix has done it again with its newest action film Lift.
The film has a great cast from comic legends to critically-acclaimed actors, and there is a newest addition to the cast. Let us find out who.
Lift Netflix has a new cast member
Lift is a upcoming original film about a skilled thief, who is recruited by his ex-girlfriend and the FBI to carry out a robbery on an aircraft mid-flight from London to Zurich with his multinational gang.
When the film was announced in September 2021, the only details revealed were that Kevin Hart will appear in the lead role and that F. Gary Gray of Straight Outta Compton would direct the movie written by Dan Kunka.
But now, in April 2022, a full cast has been revealed. And we must say things are looking pretty awesome.
Starring in the film is Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who starred in Loki. She will play the female protagonist alongside Hart in the Netflix film. However, her character’s identity is still unclear. But she’ll most likely play the protagonist’s ex-girlfriend.
