Guy Pearce certainly seems to be enjoying the spotlight once again. Between his work on Prometheus, as well as upcoming prison-escape (IN SPACE!) in Lock Out, doors are once again opening for him to be in high profile acting spots.
And for his next film, he’s going to give Tony Stark a run for his money.
Based on the Extremis storyline from the comics, Pearce is currently set to star alongside Robert Downey Junior as geneticist Aldrich Killian in Iron Man 3, Variety reports.
After creating an advanced and revolutionary new form of nanotechnology, Killian finds that his work has been stolen by a terrorist cell, led by Ben Kingsley, opening up all new doorways for a new level of homeland insecurity.
Don Cheadle and Gwyneth Paltrow are also back for the third film, which will seem their reprise their roles as James Rhodes/War Machine and Pepper Potts respectively, with shooting scheduled to begin next month, in order to meet the May 3, 2013 release.
So once again, there’s ANOTHER comic book film releasing within a day or two of my birthday.
Tickets would make for a great gift, y’know.
