Well, there have been important USA media who have mentioned that in the film, tremendous stars of the show will be present, such as: Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Himesh Patel, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Matthew Perry, Tomer Sisley and Rob Morgan. The 52- year-old McKay had actually done most lately with the pungent Satire of "The Big Short" and also the Dick Cheney Biopic "Vice" (2 Oscar elections) to attract focus.
It is arguably the biggest surprise announcement of the year 2020.
It was announced back in May that two-time Oscar victor Cate Blanchett had also signed up to star in McKay's new flick, alongside Rob Morgan.
The pair embark on a media tour to warn of the impending collision that threatens to destroy the planet in six months time only to discover that no-one believes them.
McKay and Lawrence were originally scheduled to begin production on "Don't Look Up" in April, but the coronavirus pandemic pushed that plan back.
DiCaprio, Streep and Blanchett are huge gets for any movie looking to make a splash, and Chalamet is pretty much a guarantee in one out of three casting announcements these days.
If you thought you'd watched an all-star cast, wait until you see who's in Netflix's new movie, Don't Look Up. He's also co-starring with Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon for Apple TV+.
Don't Look Up will be Hollywood icon Streep's third Netflix film.
