Israeli actor Lior Raz, who co-created and starred in the Israeli TV political thriller “Fauda,” has been cast to appear in a major Hollywood action film.
Raz will co-star with “Deadpool” hero Ryan Reynolds in a film directed by Michael Bay called “Six Underground,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Bay is best known for his blockbuster “Transformers” films.
Netflix and Skydance are behind the project, which is scheduled to begin shooting next month in locales such as Italy and the United Arab Emirates.
“Six Underground” has been described as being in the tone of “Deadpool meets Mission: Impossible.”
It centers on a group of six men and women who team up to fight evildoers. All have numerical code-names, with Reynolds’ character known as “One.”
“Fauda,” an Arabic word meaning ‘chaos,’ is a TV series about an elite IDF counter-terrorism unit whose members speak fluent Palestinian Arabic and go undercover inside cities like Nablus to gather intelligence and make arrests.
