Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us) has boarded the road trip comedy Drive-Away Dolls.
According to Deadline, Drive-Away Dolls will be directed by Oscar-winner Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men), one half of the filmmaking duo the Coen Brothers. It stars Margaret Qualley (Maid) and Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers) as Jamie and Marian, two friends whose road trip goes off course when they meet a group of incompetent criminals while on their way to Tallahassee.
Drive-Away Dolls will be the first narrative feature Ethan Coen directs without his brother. Joel Coen went solo for the first time in 2021 when he directed the Oscar-nominated film The Tragedy of Macbeth starring Denzel Washington.
Along with Pascal, Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead) joins the cast, with their roles not disclosed yet. Drive-Away Dolls also stars Matt Damon (Air), Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart) and Bill Camp (Joker).
Based on reactions online, the inclusion of both Pascal and Domingo has fans excited about what they can bring to the project.
Currently, Pedro Pascal can be seen in HBO’s The Last of Us and in the third season of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, which will end with its eighth and final episode on Wednesday (April 19). Drive-Away Dolls will be one of three live-action movies featuring Colman Domingo scheduled for release this year. The others are the remake of The Color Purple and the biopic Rustin on gay civil rights leader Bayard Rustin.
Drive-Away Dolls will premiere in theaters on September 22, 2023.
