Hollywood bigwigs Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Timothee Chalamet have joined Jennifer Lawrence in the Adam McKay directorial "Don't Look Up".

For his upcoming film about outer space, Adam McKay has gathered up quite the star-studded cast.

The Netflix comedy will tell the story of two low-level astronomers who discover the frightening truth that the earth is going to be destroyed by an incoming giant asteroid.

However, it is worth pointing out not everyone in the cast will have a starring role- with certain names, such as Ariana, only dropping by for a cameo.

The full cast now includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, Himesh Patel, Matthew Perry, and Tomer Sisley, as well as music stars Ariana Grande and Kid Cudi.

Your tolerance for McKay's newest movies probably depends a lot on how much you buy into his neoliberal political vision, but this premise at least sounds like it'll be a departure from his latest trend of recent history re-interpretation.

It's rumoured the astronomers will be played by Lawrence and DiCaprio, although Netflix has not yet confirmed these reports. Apple TELEVISION+ he has a Film dedication, and also will certainly stand in for Martin Scorsese's Western "Killers of the Flower Moon" from February 2021 before the electronic camera.

McKay, who directed Dick Cheney's biopic Vice, which was as cynical and dark as its protagonist, wanted to return to something lighthearted. He won an Oscar for The Big Short for its adapted screenplay.

As a co-production between Paramount and Netflix, we'd expect a theatrical release of some sort before it lands on the streaming platform but it's early days yet.
