When the news first dropped regarding the film, Seinfeld gave Deadline a little inside scoop as to what to expect. "Stuck at home watching endless sad faces on TV, I thought this would be a good time to make something based on pure silliness. So we took my Pop-Tart stand-up bit from my last Netflix special and exploded it into a giant, crazy comedy movie," he teased.

The upcoming Netflix film is set in 1963 in Michigan and is covering the cereal wars between Post and Kellogg's, specifically the race to who will create a pastry that will forever change breakfast. So which actors will be appearing in the world's greatest cereal-off? Melissa McCarthy, Jim Gaffigan, Amy Schumer, Hugh Grant, James Marsden, Jack McBrayer, Tom Lennon, Adrian Martinex, Bobby Moynihan, Max Greenfield, Christian Slater, and Sarah Cooper. If that isn't a stacked cast, what is? The comedian's feature film has been in production since the end of May and is scheduled to finish in July, but there are currently no details on the official debut date. However, we do know Seinfeld wrote the script with Barry Marder and fellow Seinfeld writer Spike Feresten - so it's bound to be hilarious! Stay tuned.
