Kaye's character Yankee is likely to join the antagonist team of the film and he is well-suited for more than one reason to challenge the battle-hardened heroines.

Ivan Kaye, famous for his menacing presence and intense portrayal of King Aelle of Northumbria (the protagonist's arch-enemy and nemesis in 'Vikings'), is likely to join the antagonists and if so, he brings powerful support to the syndicate that threatens the battle-hardened heroines.
On Friday, 24th May 2019, the actor himself has publicly confirmed this news on his Twitter account
With a height of 6'4" (1,93 m), dark curls, a strong build and ample experience with awe-inspiring parts in historical and action settings alike, Kaye is well-suited to pose a serious threat to the badass female fighters portrayed by actresses known for 'Game of Thrones' (Lena Headey), from the Marvel Universe (Karen Gillan, Angela Bassett) and from other cult enterprises of the fantasy, sci-fi and action genres.
As the film is described as having "bold humor" (Variety, 22 May 2019) and Ivan Kaye has experience playing gangsters who combine a menacing presence with comical qualities, his character Yankee could well be shaped along these lines.
From photo posts that Kaye dropped on his social media on Tuesday, 21st May 2019, hinting at a head cast being made for him, it is at least clear that his character will not stay undamaged throughout the story.
This high-quality casting choice for a supporting part underlines the film's promising prospect. It is going to be spectacular.
Ivan Kaye has a packed schedule this summer dividing his time between filming Amazon's series pilot for an adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' in Croatia and 'Gunpowder Milkshake' in Germany.
Kaye returns to the action genre after a series of historical productions, most recently starring as Lord Scrope in David Michôd's much anticipated 'The King' that is expected to be released later this year. He is represented by Denton Brierley.
