Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s Daisy Ridley is set to reunite with her Murder on the Orient Express co-star Josh Gad in Netflix’s superhero comedy Super-Normal. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo will also be joined by Beauty and the Beast actor Luke Evans.
Evans helped Gad pitch the project and will also serve as an executive producer alongside Gad and Dan Lin (Death Note). Brothers Aaron and Jordan Kandell, who did some work on Disney’s mega-hit Moana, have been brought on to pen the script for the comedy.
The report describes Super-Normal as “a character-driven, subversive take on a genre that Hollywood and the rest of the world loves too much.” The project was put on the market back in October and immediately drew interest from various parties, including Disney. However, Netflix came out the winner in the end.
Up next for Ridley is a return to the Star Wars universe with The Last Jedi, which is set to hit theaters next month. Evans has just come off of Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, while Gad is currently filming Little Monsters with Lupita Nyong’o.
The project does not yet have a director or a release date.
