The talented cast of horror blockbuster 'Overlord'
Producer Weber has said that the film features together with an extremely talented cast and he is fortunate to be working with the rising stars of modern cinema.
Jovan Adepo (Boyce)
After the first role along with Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in Fences (2016)Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in Fences (2016), Jovan Adepo was widely known for his memorable performance in HBO's award-winning television series, “Peabody” as well as “Mother!” - a film directed by Darren Aronofsky starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem.
2018 is a prominent year in Adepo's career when he is credited with portraying Boyce, the protagonist of "Overlord" horror blockbuster.
Wyatt Russell (Ford)
A character with a complete contrast to Boyce is the character of the seasoned Ford sergeant played by Wyatt Russell. As an explosives expert, from the very first scenes, the viewer was able to recognize him as the commanding officer of the group. With the addition of a masculine, powerful, and masculine face, Wyatt Russell is considered to be the full convergence of elements that the manufacturer is looking for.
Previously, Wyatt Russell starred in the second installment, titled "Playtest" in the critically acclaimed science-fiction series, "Black Mirror".
Mathilde Olliver (Chloe)
In 2016, Ollivier made her first short film entitled Désillusion as director. She also founded the film production company La Palette and is currently embarking on her first project, The Upright Woman. Besides, she is also working on a documentary film about the struggle of women in Burkina Faso.
The filmmakers also selected young French actress Mathilde Ollivier to play Chloe, an orphan girl living in the village who bravely hid American soldiers despite the dangers posed by Nazi troops constantly ransacking each house.
Pilou Asbæk (Wagner)
The success or failure of action-horror films depends on how the villains in the film are built, and Abrams believes that the "Overlord" will succeed thanks to the impression of Pilou Asbæk as Senator Wagner of the Nazi army.
To help the Danish actor get the best possible preparation for the role, director Avery and Asbæk have had a lot of discussion about real characters in the history of World War II.
The film revolves around issues of the Allies and Fascists during World War II. As the Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, unfortunately, a plane crashed into a mysterious area. And from there, there were so many strange things that made the soldiers so frightened that they had to find a way out.
The film brings with it the cruelty of war, the horrific appearance of bizarre characters from zombies, but there is no shortage of humorous interwoven segments to lessen the tension enveloping the atmosphere in the movie.
