Bridgerton heartthrob to star in new heist movie
Though Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page shocked fans when he announced his departure from the show, the actor has gone on to star in a new, untitled heist film.
Written and directed by TV writer Noah Hawley, the film will be produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, the duo behind several Avengers and Captain America films.
As for the film’s plot, those involved have remained tight-lipped regarding the details beyond the idea that one or more items will be stolen over the course of the movie.
Page will be working with the Russo brothers for the second time, after starring alongside Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling in the brothers’ upcoming film The Gray Man.
Following his departure from Netflix’s Bridgerton ahead of the second season, Page has been involved in a number of projects, including a role in Paramount’s upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie, and a starring role in the studio’s reboot of The Saint.View this post on Instagram
Page has also lent his voice to an audio play of Nail Gaiman’s The Sandman, with fans swooning over an excerpt of him singing in Greek.
Dirk Maggs, the co-executive producer and director, also made an appearance in the clip praising Page’s musical talent.

“We have Regé-Jean Page as Orpheus, and it turns out that Regé-Jean Page is not only an excellent actor and an outrageously good-looking chap. He also sings like an angel,” Maggs said in the video.
“I’ve been, and I’ve got to say, it still sends shivers up my spine.”
