Sam Worthington (Avatar) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Loki) will star alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Theo James in heist thriller Fuze.

The pair joins along with more additions to the cast, including Elham Ehsas (Homeland, Shantaram) and Honor Swinton-Byrne (The Souvenir, Drift). Directed by Oscar nominee David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water, Outlaw King) the project commenced filming in London this week.

Ben Hopkins penned the film. It follows the discovery of a long-buried World War II bomb in central London which sparks “a city-wide evacuation, while a group of men exploit the chaos to their own ends,” a plot synopsis reads.

Fuze is the first feature I’ve shot in London and I’m thrilled to be here.” Mackenzie said. “The cast and crew are the cream of British talent and I’m excited to roll the camera.” Producer Gillian Berrie added: “I’ve never felt more excited or in better shape to start principal photography. The script is rocking and our team are on fire. What a cast.”

The film is produced by Berrie, Mackenzie for Sigma Films, as well as Sebastien Raybaud and Callum Grant for Anton. Giles Nuttgens joins Mackenzie’s creative team as director of photography
after previously collaborating on seven films, including Hell or High Water.
