Matt Damon and Pedro Pascal join cast of crime comedy movie from Oscar-winning filmmaker
It's from one of the directors behind The Big Lebowski, Fargo and No Country for Old Men.
It was previously reported that rising stars Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers) and Margaret Qualley (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) would star in the crime comedy. The movie's distributor Focus Features has now confirmed this while revealing more details regarding the film's cast, plot and release date.
The synopsis for Drive-Away Dolls reads:
"This comedy caper follows Jamie, an uninhibited free spirit bemoaning yet another breakup with a girlfriend, and her demure friend Marian who desperately needs to loosen up. In search of a fresh start, the two embark on an impromptu road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals along the way."
Alongside Viswanathan and Qualley, men-of-the-moment Matt Damon (Air, Oppenheimer) and Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us, The Mandalorian) will appear in the movie opposite Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart), Bill Camp (The Queen's Gambit) and Colman Domingo (Euphoria).
Margaret Qualley is one of the stars of Drive-Away Dolls
As well as directing, Coen wrote the script for the film alongside his wife Tricia Cooke.
