John Boyega Set to Star In Upcoming Netflix Sci-Fi Movie 'They Cloned Tyrone'

The film is being described as "Friday-meets-Get Out."

Fresh off his performance as Finn in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker John Boyega is set to take on another leading role, this time in the Netflix's upcoming sci-fi comedy They Cloned Tyrone. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news.

The film will be the directorial debut of Juel Taylor the writer behind Creed 2. He co-wrote the script for They Cloned Tyrone with Tony Rettenmaier.


Here's a description of the film via The Hollywood Reporter:

Likened to "Friday-meets-Get Out," the film is described a pulpy, sci-fi mystery caper, in which an unlikely trio investigates a series of eerie events, alerting them to a nefarious conspiracy lurking directly beneath their hood.

Boyega has a number of upcoming projects, aside from starring in the third and final chapter of the latest Star Wars trilogy, the actor is also gearing up to star in alongside Letitia Wright in the upcoming love story Hold Back the Stars and in Steve McQueen's BBC anthology series "Small Axe."

Earlier this year, it was also announced that the actor would be producing the South African-set crime drama 'God is Good." Though he told MTV News earlier this year that he "honestly thinks" this will be Finn's final appearance in Star Wars, it looks like we'll have plenty more to watch the star actor in.

Production for They Cloned Tyrone is set to begin in the first quarter of next year.
