The former ‘Kill Bill’ star will take the lead for one of Netflix’s finest heroes!
Known primarily for her role on screen, former Charlie’s Angels and Kill Bill actress Lucy Liu will direct the season 2 premier of Luke Cage, which debuted on Netflix last September.
“She brings the same buoyant intensity, deft humor, and singular focus to her directing that she has always brought to her acting….not to mention the fact that the former ‘O’Ren Ishii’ certainly knows her way around an action sequence,” Luke Cage showrunner and executive producer Cheo Hodari Coker said of Liu.
Liu directing history includes the 2011 short film Menna, four episodes of Elementary, and an episode of Graceland.
Mike Colter will return as Luke Cage, Simone Missick as Detective Misty Knight and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. As for the villains, Theo Rossi will return as Shades and Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard. Some new faces will also be coming to Season 2, including Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson and Mustafa Shakir as John McIver.
Although no specific date has been provided, Season 2 of Luke Cage will be released to Netflix sometime next year!
