The Super Mario Bros Movie and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor Charlie Day has landed his next movie, as part of the ensemble cast for Ethan Coen’s newest project.

As reported by Deadline, 13 actors have now joined the previously-announced Chris Evans, Aubrey Plaza, and Margaret Qualley in the comedy Honey Don’t!

The other newcomers alongside Day include Difficult People and Bros star Billy Eichner, Broadway star Talia Ryder, Gina Yei actor Jacnier, Blue Bloods and Succession actor Gabby Beans, House of Cards‘ Kristin Connolly and Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin‘s Lera Abova.

The large ensemble also includes Snowpiercer‘s Lena Hall, True Blood actor Don Swayze, Runaway‘s Josh Pafchek, Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Kale Browne, Magnolia Flowers actor Alexander Carstoiu, and Spartacus‘ Christian Antidormi.

Production is currently ongoing in New Mexico, and KFTV previously reported that the movie will centre on a detective investigating a young woman’s mysterious death, and whether it’s linked to a mysterious local church.

It’s been confirmed that frequent Coen Brothers collaborator, and Ethan’s wife, Tricia Cooke, has co-written the script with her husband.

We also know that the film is said to be in a similar vein to the couple’s comedy road trip movie Drive-Away Dolls, which starred Qualley.

Day has a few upcoming projects including the dark comedy Kill Me, which sees him play a man who wakes up after nearly dying. While all evidence points it to looking like one thing, he sets out with the aid of a 911 operator to prove that things aren’t as they seem.

There’s also the confirmed sequel to The Super Mario Bros Movie, and the Luigi actor told Digital Spy last year which Always Sunny co-star he thought would be a good addition to the cast.

“If you put anyone from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia into the Mushroom Kingdom, they’re going to be great. Maybe [Danny] DeVito would be a great Wario,” he said. “He would be really good.”
