Zack Snyder's next film for Netflix, Rebel Moon, has been in production for a while now, but there are still additions being made to the cast. The streaming service used Geeked Week to announce that Anthony Hopkins is lending his voice to the sci-fi action movie.

As confirmed by a reply from the director himself, Hopkins will be Jimmy, a sentient JC1435 mechanized battle robot and one-time defender of the slain King.

Beginning life as Snyder’s proposed Star Wars movie, Rebel Moon takes inspiration from Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai – telling the story of a galactic colony who assembles a group of warriors to fend off the tyrannical Balisarius (Ed Skrein).

Sofia Boutella, Charlie Hunnam, Sofia Boutella, Jena Malone, Corey Stoll, Michiel Huisman, Cary Elwes, Doona Bae and Ray Fisher also star in the film, which Snyder wrote with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad.

There's no release date confirmed for this one yet.
