The film also stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio and Paola Nuñez. Joe Pantoliano is on board to return as Captain Howard, reports variety.com.

It is currently not known who Khaled will be playing in the movie, for which production is currently under way.

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are on hand to direct the sequel from a script by Peter Craig with Joe Carnahan also doing a rewrite. Chris Bremmer is the current writer.
