Leonardo DiCaprio, Timothèe Chalamet, Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, and More to Star in Netflix’s ‘Don’t Look Up’
Director Adam McKay has added a star-studded lineup to his upcoming Netflix original film titled Don’t Look Up.
Back in February, Netflix obtained the film that, at the time, had actress Jennifer Lawrence solely linked to the cast. Today, Netflix revealed the full cast, one that included the surprising reveal of singer Ariana Grande.
According to Deadline, Don’t Look Up is a comedy about “two low-level astronomers who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy Earth.”
The cast of Adam McKay’s DON’T LOOK UP is absolutely iconic:

Scott Stuber, head of Netflix films, spoke to Deadline earlier this year about the movie. “Adam has always had great timing when it comes to making smart, relevant, and irreverent films that depict our culture,” Stuber said. “Even if he somehow ends up predicting planet Earth’s imminent demise, we’re excited to add this to our slate before it all comes to an end.”
