Vera Farmiga, Kelly Macdonald, Kevin Pollak, America Ferrera, Raúl Castillo and Benjamin Bratt have joined the cast of the screen satire Special Correspondents, Netflix announced.
Principal photography began in Toronto on May 19 and production is scheduled to wrap in New York City on July 3.
Written and directed by Ricky Gervais, the feature film is scheduled to debut via the online streaming service next year.
The movie will star Eric Bana as a struggling, New York-based radio journalist "whose arrogance and decadent lifestyle has hindered his career," a synopsis said. "With his job on the line, he fakes front-line war reports from the comfort of his hideout above a Spanish restaurant in Manhattan."
