Masi Oka, known for his roles on Heroes and Hawaii Five-0 as well as for founding The Outer Wilds developer Mobius Digital, has signed on to play a role in the new Brad Pitt action movie Bullet Train.
Deadline reported the news, but the site did not have any details on the character that Oka will play. Regardless, he joins an already stacked cast that includes Aaron Taylor Johnson, Zazie Beetz, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, and Andrew Koji in the film that will be directed by David Leitch (Hobbs & Shaw, Deadpool 2).
Bullet Train is inspired by the novel Maria Beetle, and it has been likened to the Keanu Reeves movie Speed, but this time with a train … and assassins. A group of hitmen and assassins are on a speeding train in Tokyo and they’re out to kill each other. The name of the movie appears to be in reference to Japan’s Shinkansen rail train, known in English as the bullet train.
