Samara Weaving, Max Minghella, Flea Among New Additions To Damien Chazelle’s ‘Babylon’

Damien Chazelle‘s upcoming 1920s Hollywood-set film is shaping up to be quite the star-studded picture. Best known for his directorial efforts on 2014’s Whiplash and 2017’s La La Land, two Academy Award-winning films, Chazelle has seemingly taken a break ever since the release of his Neil Armstrong-centered biopic First Man, but is finally getting back into the swing of things.

Earlier this week we learned that Katherine Waterston would be joining the cast of Chazelle’s upcoming film Babylon in an undisclosed role alongside the likes of Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Diego Calva, Jovan Adepo, and Li Jun Li.

But today, a new bunch of actors have been confirmed to round out the rest of the cast. These new additions are Samara Weaving, Max Minghella, Flea, Rory Scovel, Lukas Haas, Eric Roberts, P.J. Byrne, and Damon Gupton.

Seeing as how Babylon is not scheduled for release until next year, plot details and additional crew members have not been announced quite yet. All we know as of right now is the star-studded main cast line-up, its R-rating and it’s December 25, 2022 release date.

Olivia Hamilton, Matt Plouffe, and Marc Platt will serve as producers on the project while Tobey Maguire, Helen Estabrook and Adam Siegel serve as executive producers.
