Cast For Netflix Film Don't Look Up Is Absolutely Star-Studded
The cast of upcoming Netflix film Don't Look Up is completely jam-packed with stars - which is quite fitting, given that it's about a couple of astronomers.
Then there's Rob Morgan (Daredevil), Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Himesh Patel (Yesterday) and Tomer Sisley (Messiah), as well as funny blokes Jonah Hill (Superbad) and Matthew Perry (Chandler bloody Bing from Friends, obviously).
Oh, and just for good measure, musicians Kid Cudi and Ariana Grande also join the 'absolutely iconic' line-up.
The cast of Adam McKay's DON'T LOOK UP is absolutely iconic:

Adam McKay will write, direct and co-produce the comedy, so we should be in safe hands on the other side of the camera too - he directed and co-wrote the likes of Anchorman, Step Brothers and The Other Guys.
McKay also received two Oscar nominations for The Big Short, which was the first film he directed without Will Ferrell in the cast.

The movie will follow the story of two low-level astronomers as they try to warn humanity of an inbound asteroid that will destroy Earth.
Beyond that, we don't know much about the story as of yet.
The movie will reportedly begin filming before the end of the year and is expected to have a theatrical release, according to Deadline.
When exactly it will be released depends largely on you-know-what and the unknowable delays it may cause.
