‘The Out-Laws’: Nina Dobrev, Michael Rooker, and More Join the Netflix Action-Comedy
Netflix continues its tremendous output of original films, and one of its latest action comedies The Out-Laws has just added several stars to its cast. The film, which is being led by Adam DeVine (Workaholics) and Pierce Brosnan (Goldeneye), has just added Ellen Barkin (Animal Kingdom), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Michael Rooker (The Suicide Squad), Lil Rel Howery (Vacation Friends), Richard Kind (Spin City), Blake Anderson (Workaholics), Poorna Jagannathan (The Night Of), and Julie Hagerty (Instant Family). No word has been given on who these new additions will be playing.
DeVine stars in The Out-Laws as Owen, a bank manager who is about to marry his fiancé Parker. Just as his in-laws come into town to visit, his bank is held up by a group of bandits known as the Ghost Bandits, with Owen believing the visiting in-laws to be the criminals. While there’s no official word on who Brosnan will be playing, it’s easy to see him as the villainous in-law of DeVine’s lead. Adam Sandler‘s Happy Madison production company is overseeing the film, which is not a surprise given that it will be directed by Tyler Spindel, who helmed the recent Netflix film The Wrong Missy from the same label.
DeVine is no stranger to Netflix, having led the romantic comedy When We First Met and the action-comedy Game Over, Man!, which both released in 2018. The latter saw him star opposite his Workaholics co-stars in Anderson and Anders Holm. The Out-Laws will serve as just another reunion for DeVine and Anderson. As for Brosnan, the former James Bond has kept himself busy, with recent supporting roles in Netflix’s musical comedy Eurovision and the Amazon Prime remake of Cinderella. He’s set to star opposite Dwayne Johnson in Black Adam as Kent Nelson/Doctor Fate.
The Out-Laws marks just one of many Happy Madison projects for Netflix. Aside from last year’s The Wrong Missy, the streamer has also released several Sandler films in The Ridiculous Six, Sandy Wexler, Hubie Halloween, and Murder Mystery. The production studio and Netflix have clearly struck a strong working relationship, with the sports comedy Hustle set for release next year.
There’s no release date yet for The Out-Laws, but with these casting additions, production is certainly ramping up and it’s conceivable that this new comedy could land on Netflix next year.
