Comer will play the avatar, Molotov Girl. In the real world, she is the programmer who created the game but then it was stolen from her. Rel will play another background character and Reynolds’ best friend and Keery will play a programmer who may or may not have a secret agenda.
Shawn Levy will be directing from a script penned by Matt Lieberman. Filming is secluded to begin in April.
