Kazinsky joins the previously announced cast of Charlie Hunnan, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Max Martini.
The film is set on an alternate version of Earth in the near future. The story centres on humans piloting giant robots to battle giant aliens that are invading Earth through a wormhole-type structure.
