Bright is available only on Netflix this December.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ramirez’ character’s name is Kandomere, and he works for the FBI’s magic division. If you don’t recall, Bright revolves around a human cop, played by Will Smith, who partners up with the first Orc cop on the force, played by Joel Edgerton, to fight crime in a world populated by both humans and fantastical creatures. So like, a gritty version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or what Middle Earth would be like if it existed in the modern day.
Bright is currently in production, and doesn‘t yet have an official release date either on Netflix or in theaters.
With his cameras rolling in Los Angeles, David Ayer has not yet finished finding the people he wants to appear in crime drama/fantasy hybrid Bright. Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are the leads and now Edgar Ramirez is on board for a role.
Crafted as a spec script by Max Landis, Bright finds Smith and Edgerton as a human and an orc who must outrun the authorities, criminals and a variety of supernatural beings to protect a powerful magic wand. Lucy Fry is on as Tikka, a young elf with her own magical abilities who comes into possession of the wand and needs the leads’ help when dark forces try to hunt her down. As for Ramirez, he’ll be an elf named Kandomere, assigned to the FBI’s magic division.
Netflix is behind this one, which has yet to announce a release date. Ramirez, most recently seen in The Girl On The Train, is starring alongside Matthew McConaughey in Gold, due here on 2 February.
Dawn Olivieri and Kenneth Choi join Will Smith in Bright.
