Things are bubbling up for Pedro Pascal…
The 45-year-old Chilean actor has been cast in Judd Apatow’s next comedy The Bubble for Netflix.
Pascal, who recently starred in Wonder Woman 1984, joins a cast that includes Karen Gillan, Iris Apatow, Fred Armisen, Maria Bakalova, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, Leslie Mann and Peter Serafinowicz.
Apatow will direct and produce the film, as well as co-write the script with Pam Brady.
The film follows a group of actors and actresses stuck inside a pandemic bubble at a hotel attempting to complete a film. The film couldn’t be more timely as more and more productions are ramping back up even as COVID-19 remains in full effect around the world.
Once Netflix boarded the project, it quickly was fast-tracked with a plan to start shooting at the top of 2021. The plan also always has been to deliver a cast that rivals previous A-list ensembles like those for The Disaster Artist and Knives Out.
