Salma Hayek may be the latest star to join the cast of Marvel Studios’ The Eternals.
According to a new report from The Wrap, Salma Hayek is now in talks to join the cast of The Eternals. There are no details on who she will play if the deal goes through. The Oscar-nominated actress has yet to do a blockbuster of this size, but she would be the latest addition to a cast that Marvel Studios reportedly wants to be incredibly diverse.
Richard Madden and Kumail Nanjiani are also on board the superhero adventure project, which is based on the 1976 comic book series created by Jack Kirby. Angelina Jolie remains in talks to also star, with no deal set.
The comic features superpowered and near-immortal beings known as Eternals and a more monstrous offshoot known as the Deviants that were created by cosmic beings known as Celestials.
Filming on The Eternals is expected to begin later this year after Black Widow wraps production.
Directed by Chloé Zhao with a screenplay by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, The Eternals is expected to be released in theaters in 2020.
