Novak, Michael Fassbenderand Tarantino mainstays Michael Madsen and Tim Roth.

Speaking of the latter Roth, he's come aboard Skellig, a U.K.-produced fantasy about a boy and his magical creature that costars Kelly MacDonald. Skellig will premiere on Britain's Sky One next spring and then hit theaters.
