Only Murders in the Building star Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Power actor Method Man are the new recruits for director Joe Carnahan’s next film Shadow Force.
Kerry Washington (Django Unchained) and Omar Sy (Lupin) are already onboard the action-thriller, playing ex-leaders of the eponymous, multinational special forces group, Kyrah and Isaac (via Deadline).
A synopsis teases how they ripped up the rule book in one fell swoop: falling in love, so the couple must head underground with a juicy bounty hanging over their heads.
Method Man and Randolph’s roles in Shadow Force are yet to be confirmed.

Method Man, real name Clifford Smith Jr, has built quite the CV outside the rap game, notching up credits in Concrete Cowboy, Luke Cage and The Wire.
He will next be seen in Paramount+ film On the Come Up, which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. He also serves as the narrator for DC Comics’ Milestone Generations on HBO Max, and will lend his voice to Disney Channel’s upcoming animated series Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
Randolph, meanwhile, is more of an up-and-comer, with Detective Williams in Only Murders in the Building and Beth Hatten in The Lost City her most prominent roles to date.
She will next star in the comedy Shriver, in which she appears alongside Michael Shannon, and Netflix’s Bayard Rustin biopic Rustin, produced by Barack and Michelle Obama.
