Hong Chau is about to star in a whale of a movie.
The actress, who recently appeared in the Amazon drama series Homecoming and HBO’s highly acclaimed limited series Watchmen, is the latest performer to join The Whale cast for director Darren Aronofsky. This will be his first film since 2017’s divisive mother! – which, for the record, is fantastic. Brendan Fraser (The Mummy) is already on board to play the male lead, and a new report says Chau is now on board as the female lead. That report also suggests that a Minority Report actress and a Stranger Things actress are in talks to play supporting roles in the movie, and you can find out more about that below.

Leigh Janiak, director of indie horror film Honeymoon, is set to helm all three entries in the trilogy. Unlike the Goosebumps series by R.L.

The first season of Stranger Things got so much buzz and acclaim that a second-season renewal seemed like a foregone conclusion — even if it took Netflix a month and a half to get around to making it official. And based on the hype already building around season two, it seems possible that the next chapter of this story will be an even bigger hit than the last.
