Director Tim Miller and producer James Cameron have tapped Gabriel Luna for the role originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Luna is best known for starring as Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider on the ABC action superhero series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, as well as the El Rey Network drama series Matador. On the film side, he starred in the films Freeheld and Transpecos.
The exclusive report by Deadline also mentions that Natalia Reyes (Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas) and Diego Boneto (Scream Queens) also have been tapped to star in the film.
