During a recent press junket, Den of Geek caught up with Hellboy‘s David Harbour and when asked about the Black Widow solo movie, the actor revealed that the upcoming movie will begin shooting this coming June. Few details are known about the movie, but what we do know is that it will be directed by Cate Shortland (Lore and Berlin Syndrome) and will star Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff, Florence Pugh, and Harbour.
“I think it’s slated to start in June. I don’t think they have it fully-boarded yet, but it’s a great character. I’m really excited about it. The cast is fleshing out (with) Scarlett and Florence Pugh, I think they said. I know they were talking about Rachel Weisz. There’s some really great actresses.”
“I can’t really say anything about the story,” Harbour continued, “It’s very interesting. It’s very surprising. When they pitched it to me, I was very surprised, but I will say, the thing that really takes it over the edge for me is this director, Cate Shortland, who made this movie Lore. It came out back in 2012, or something. She is a phenomenally sophisticated film maker, really brilliant, really passionate and just a beautiful human being.”
“When I sat down and talked with her about this thing, we talked for hours about all kinds of stuff and she’s just a deep human being. I’m really excited to work with all of these women and I think it could be a really, really good movie.”
