We recently confirmed Marvel Studios’ big crossover event series Secret Invasion’s crew would include production designer Frank Walsh (Lost In Space) and cinematographer Sylvaine Dufaux (Solo: A Star Wars Story, Future Man).
There is word from Film London that production has indeed started this month on Secret Invasion.
The impressive cast consists of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Skrull Leader Talos, Oscar-winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite, Hot Fuzz, The Crown), four-time Emmy nominee Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story), Kingsley Ben-Adir (One Night In Miami, Peaky Blinders) said to be playing a villain, and most recent addition to the Marvel series is character actor Christopher McDonald (Hacks, Happy Gilmore).
The show’s head writer is Kyle Bradstreet with directors Thomas Bezhucha (Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower) shooting episodes.
Also, we have some updates concerning the reshoots for Hawkeye.
Hollywood North Buzz is relaying information from Production Weekly that claims that the Hawkeye series (working title Anchor Point) will be doing some brief reshoots in Toronto, where Jeremy Renner is filming his other series Mayor of Kingstown.
The Ronin can confirm this information along with adding our own that directors Rhys Thomas and new addition Tim Roche (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Silicon Valley) will be involved with the two days of filming that kick-off today. Roche has been an editor on WandaVision and Hawkeye, but has directing experience on sitcoms.
Bert and Bertie are also part of the show’s directing team.
Joining Renner includes actors such as Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Brian D’Arcy James, Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez aka Echo (getting her own spinoff series).
The six-episode MCU series originally wrapped filming back in April with a crew that includes production designer Maya Shimoguchi (The Matrix Resurrections, War For The Planet of Apes), cinematographer Eric Steelberg (Ghostbusters: Afterlife) and Heidi Moneymaker (Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.3) as the show’s stunt coordinator.
Hawkeye will debut on Disney+ starting November 24 and Secret Invasion should be ready in late 2022.
