Along with Stallone, Thomas Jane was originally cast this past April to co-star in the film, but various sources like Film Stage suggest that Kang—selected to play a “key supporting role”—may be replacing Jane. Most known for his roles in The Fast and the Furious franchise, indieWIRE reports that Kang was recruited for the part with the support of Dark Castle Entertainment, especially when producer Joel Silver began his search for a more racially diverse cast.

Filming will begin later this month in Louisiana.
