For his upcoming film about outer space, Adam McKay has gathered up quite the star-studded cast. 

On Wednesday, Oct. 14, Netflix confirmed the big names slated for one of the writer and director's next projects: Don't Look Up. The movie, which is slated for the streaming giant, will feature some names you've definitely heard of: Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Himesh Patel, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Matthew Perry, Tomer Sisley, Jennifer Lawrence and Rob Morgan.

As the Netflix Film Twitter account perfectly put it, "The cast of Adam McKay's DON'T LOOK UP is absolutely iconic."

While we wrap our heads around this truly stellar cast, you might be wondering what the movie is actually about. While much still isn't known about the performers' individual characters, we do know the movie centers, as a press release put it, on "two low-level astronomers who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet earth."

Leonardo DiCaprio's Best Roles

As fans await the official release date for this star-packed project, it marks a reunion for some of the former co-stars. DiCaprio previously appeared in Marvin's Room with Streep back in 1997 and starred alongside Blanchett in The Aviator. In addition to being friends off-screen, he and Hill also appeared as pals in The Wolf of Wall Street

In addition to big names, the movie will also feature major acting chops as six names on the list have at least one Oscar nomination or win.

Now that we're truly hyped up for this project, all that's left to do is wait to hear more. In the words of the newly cast Grande, "Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin.'"
