Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Aaron Taylor-Johnson has joined the cast of the new film Fuze.
Variety reported Thursday that Taylor-Johnson will star in the upcoming heist thriller from David Mackenzie.
The film will reunite Taylor-Johnson and Mackenzie, who previously collaborated on the 2018 historical drama Outlaw King.
Deadline confirmed Taylor-Johnson's casting.
Fuze is written by Ben Hopkins and directed by Mackenzie.
The film opens with an unexploded World War II bomb being discovered in a London construction site, sparking a mass evacuation -- the perfect cover for a heist.
"I had the idea of combining all the high stakes of an unexploded bomb with that of a bank robbery -- clashing these two genres to create as much pressure as possible in a context that feels as real as possible. Ben Hopkins took those ingredients and cooked up the compelling script that we are now taking into production," Mackenzie said in a statement.
Anton will finance the project and shop the film at the European Film Market in Berlin this month.
Mackenzie also directed Hell or High Water. Taylor-Johnson is known for the Kick-Ass movies and for playing PIetro Maximoff in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
