Marvel star Hayley Atwell has landed her next movie role in the animated feature Rogue Trooper alongside Slow Horses' Jack Lowden.

Written and directed by Duncan Jones, the animated science fiction feature stars Dunkirk's Aneurin Barnard as the eponymous Rogue Trooper alongside Atwell and Lowden.

Per the synopsis: "Rogue Trooper tells the story of 19, a 'Genetic Infantryman', who finds himself the sole survivor of an invasion force. Desperate to track down the traitor who sold him and his comrades out, the super soldier is accompanied by three killed-in-action squad mates, whose personalities have been stored in his gun, helmet and rucksack."

Boasting a star-studded cast, the film, which is based on the classic British comic of the same name, also stars Peaky Blinders' Daryl McCormack and Inside No. 9's Reece Shearsmith.

Joining them on the cast is Avatar 2: The Way of Water's Jemaine Clement, What We Do in the Shadows star Matt Berry, Sex Education's Asa Butterfield, Diane Morgan, Alice Lowe, and Game of Thrones' Sean Bean.

Created by artist Dave Gibbons (Watchmen, Kingsman) and writer Gerry Finley-Day (Dan Dare), the Rogue Trooper comic was released by British publishers 2000 AD, which is home to Judge Dredd, Halo Jones and Sláine.

Speaking about the movie adaptation, filmmaker Jones said: "2000 AD offers a very different flavour of comic action: Political and brutal at times, but always with a Pythonesque twinkle in the eye. Dredd (2012) was a taste of what 2000 AD has to offer and now we get to show the world another side of the beast. It is a genuine privilege to be given the opportunity to make Rogue Trooper."

Serving as producers on the upcoming movie are Stuart Fenegan alongside Jason Kingsley, Chris Kingsley, and Jones.

Principal photography for Rogue Trooper has already wrapped and the film is set to complete in 2025, with a release date yet to be announced.
