Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) has joined Netflix Sci-Fi thriller How It Ends.

How It Ends centers on a mysterious apocalyptic event that turns the roads into mayhem, and a young father (played by star Theo James) who will stop at nothing to get home to his pregnant wife on the other side of the country.

The Academy Award winning actor was last seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story where he played Saw Guerrera and then went on to reprise the role in Star Wars Rebels.
