In August 2019, Henry Golding was cast to star in the title role, with Andrew Koji cast as Storm Shadow.[4][5] In September, Iko Uwais entered negotiations to join the film as Hard Master, and Úrsula Corberó was cast as Baroness.[6][7] Uwais was confirmed in October, with Haruka Abe, Samara Weaving and Takehiro Hira added to the cast.[8][9]

Filming began on October 15, 2019 in Vancouver and is expected to continue until December 9.[10] Filming will also take place in Japan.[11]
