As revealed by Deadline, the three stars will lead Spiderhead. A live-action adaptation of the George Saunders short story, the film is set in the future when convicted criminals get an opportunity to shorten their sentences by volunteering as medical subjects.

Spiderhead will be directed by Joseph Kosinski. The director is currently working on Top Gun: Maverick and will set his sights on the Netflix original next.

Smollet made her DCEU debut in Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)  as Dinah Laurel Lance/Black Canary. She was praised by fans and critics, with many hoping that she reprises the role in the future. She also currently stars in Lovecraft Country and is receiving critical acclaim for her performance.

Teller portrayed Mister Fantastic/Reed Richards in the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot that is now regarded as one of the worst superhero movies ever made. Though his performance was great, the reception and the box office failure resulted in the planned sequel getting cancelled. And now, the rights have reverted back to Marvel, meaning that the characters will soon be rebooted in the MCU.

These three actors are all fantastic performers, so we can’t wait to see them share the screen in Spiderhead.
