Casting News for Aces sequel

Casting News for Aces sequel

Nestor Carbonell (“The Dark Knight”, TVs “Lost”) and Tommy Flanagan (“Aliens Vs. Predator : Requeim”, TVs “Sons of Anarchy”) have joined the cast of Universal’s “Smokin Aces : Blowback”.

The actors are back reprising their roles from the first film that of Pasquale Acosta “S.A. Gerald Diego” and Laszlo Soot, respectively.

Acosta is a maniacal torture expert and mercenary, whilst Soot is a deadly master of disguise.

The new film, a prequel to Joe Carnahan’s popular 2007 actioner, centers on the ‘Tremor’ Family but we’re told not to expect the return of next-big-thing Chris Pine (which probably goes without saying considering the young actor followed up his turn in the original “Aces” with possibly the biggest part next to Jesus, Elvis and Augustus Gloop – Captain Kirk) as oldest brother Darwin.

Production begins next month in Vancouver with P.J Pesce (“Lost Boys : The Tribe”) calling the shots.
