Pom Klementieff set for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

Writer/director James Gunn is currently in Atlanta preparing to start shooting his Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) sequel. While we might expect to learn a lot of casting information from him via Facebook, the first piece has actually broken before he had the chance, with news arriving via The Hollywood Reporter that Pom Klementieff (Oldboy) has been cast in a mystery role in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. 

In true Marvel fashion, nothing has been released about the part, other than it called for an Asian actress and required a wide search and several auditions. Klementieff, usually found in French films, but who made her English language debut messing with Josh Brolin's mind in Spike Lee's version of Oldboy (2013), is now joining the Thanos man in the Guardians Of The Galaxy universe.

Gunn is working further on the script and setting up to shoot the Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel in February, with main cast Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and voice performers Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper all set to return. We can expect Michael Rooker's Yondu to be making a nuisance of himself too, as he will be tied into the plot about learning who Peter Quill's father is and it certainly wouldn't be a James Gunn film without him.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit our screens on 28 April 2017.
