Deadline is reporting Domhnall is in talks to join “A Futile And Stupid Gesture“.
Domhnall Gleeson is making a deal to join Will Forte in A Futile And Stupid Gesture, the Netflix feature about the guys who founded National Lampoon and turned into a comic force that hatched John Hughes, John Belushi, and movies including Animal House and Caddyshack. Forte already was set to play Doug Kenney, and Gleeson will play Henry Beard, who formed the humor magazine with Kenney and Robert Hoffman. David Wain is directing the film, which Michael Colton and John Aboud adapted from the Josh Karp book. Peter Principato and Jonathan Stern are producing.
Gleeson had a most memorable 2015, co-starring in Ex Machina, The Revenant, Brooklyn and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He picks up where he left off, co-starring with Tom Cruise in the Doug Liman-directed Mena, and then Crash Pad, and he’s back shooting the next Star Wars installment. He had time in his schedule to squeeze in the Lampoon film.
Gleeson’s repped by Paradigm and Dublin-based The Agency’s Karl Hayden.
StarWars.com has announced that principal photography for “Star Wars: Episode VIII” began. It has been confirmed that Domhnall will return.
Rey took her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will continue her epic journey with Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the continuing Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode VIII, which began principal photography at Pinewood Studios in London on February 15, 2016.
Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is written and directed by Rian Johnson and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcomes back cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis.

Narrating the series
Domhnall Gleeson, 32, is an Irish actor, director and writer, eldest son of actor Brendan Gleeson. He has had notable successes over the past ten years, both on stage and screen but you are most likely to recognize him from one of a growing list of blockbuster movies: as Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; Caleb in Ex machina; General Hux in Star Wars or Andrew Henry in The Revenant.
“The BBC’s nature documentaries have always been inspiring and fascinating to me. To be involved with one is a delight – even though nobody actually wears spectacles in the documentary” -Domhnall on narrating the series
Domhnall sat down with Hunger TV alongside his co-star Will Poulter to talk about “The Revenant“. We have added the photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the interview can be found below.
Setting aside space sagas and superhero schlock, The Revenant is about as big a film production you could possibly get right now. With director Alejandro González Iñárritu still basking in Oscar success with last year’s Birdman and arguably the biggest movie star in the world in Leo DiCaprio hell bent on winning one of his own, it’s been long expected that this would be a special project. Factor in an epic, archetypal Hollywood storyline (revenge!), some of the most astonishing photography you’ll see on the big screen, thanks to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and 65mm film, plus a fantastic supporting cast and you have something pretty spectacular to divert your attention for two and half hours.
We spoke with two members of the cast, the ever-excellent Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter, to discuss just how special an experience it was to make a film with such a punishing schedule and lofty ambitions.
Domhnall attended “The Revenant” UK premiere earlier this week at Empire Leicester Square in London alongside his co-star Will Poulter, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Paul Anderson and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
