Are you as impressed as we are? From Leo DiCaprio to Jennifer Lawrence – to the queen of pop herself – it’s officially the crossover we never knew we needed. Oh, and did we mention we’ll be catching Chandler Bing as well? Could we BE anymore excited?
It all started back in February, as film director, Adam McKay first revealed to Deadline J Law’s role in the highly-anticipated film. “I’m so thrilled to make this movie with Jen Lawrence,” he said. “She’s what folks in the 17th century used to call ‘a dynamite talent.”
We couldn’t agree more, Adam. Well, now that we know who will be blessing our screens, what exactly can we expect from them? For starters, Leo and J Law will be taking the leads, as they play astronomers trying to warn the world of a meteor set to strike the Earth in six months.
“The fact that Netflix sees this movie as a worldwide comedy sets the bar high for me and my team in an exciting and motivating way,” McKay continued. Yep, our expectations officially couldn’t be higher. That being said, we’d stay tuned if we were you.
