A lot of comedy movies would kill to include Patton Oswalt, Danny Glover, and David Cross in its cast, and though the three of them will be appearing in a movie together, it’ll actually be a sci-fi-ish drama. According to Deadline, Oswalt, Glover, and Cross have joined the cast of Sorry To Bother You, the directorial debut of writer Boots Riley. They’ll be joining previously cast stars Tessa Thompson, Lakeith Stanfield, Armie Hammer, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, and Steven Yeun.

The movie is about a telemarketer with low self-esteem who finds a “magical key to business success,” but as he begins to rise through the company, he discovers “the macabre secret of his corporate overlords” and must then decide if he should sell out and join them or stick with his ideals.
