“I’m the only female in the cast, and she kind of appears a quarter of the way through the film, and is kind of the catalyst of everything going wrong, and all the secrets being exposed and everything falling to pieces. Which is great!” Kaya shared with IndieWire about the role. “I get to do loads of running and killing and jumping around and things, which I’ve never done before, I’ve never done action and physical things, so I’m looking forward to pushing myself to see if I can stop eating fry ups and get healthy.”
It was just announced that Jacob Latimore and Blake Cooper have joined the cast. Can’t wait to see more pics from filming!

“Being here is obviously been the top so far,” Kaya shared with the LA Times. “It has been a wonderful experience but absolutely terrifying. It’s going to take me a long time not to be terrified of this whole thing. Where I’ve grown up and where I come from, this doesn’t really happen to people like me.”
