And now you can add Jeff Bridges to the increasingly impressive line-up. The Oscar-winner revealed the news on Twitter:

There’s no word as to what character Bridges will playing, but regardless, the actor marks another strong get for the sequel to 2014’s surprise hit. The follow-up will reunite Bridges and Moore, who starred together in the ill-received 2014 fantasy Seventh Son.
