Star Trek into Darkness‘ Chris Pine has been announced as one of the participants in Netflix‘s Wet Hot American Summer series.
Pine and John Hamm, Kristen Wiig and Jason Schwartzman are the latest additions to the cast.
The eight-episode series is a follow-up to the 2001 cult comedy, which was set on the “last day at a fictional Jewish summer camp in 1981.” The movie barely made a ripple at the box office, but later became a cult classic.
Original cast members will be returning for the movie, including Amy Poehler, Michael Showalter, Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Kevin Sussman. They will be joined by Pine, Wiig, Schwartzman, Michaela Watkins, John Slattery, Josh Charles, Randall Park, Jayma Mays, Lake Bell, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, and Richard Schiff.
Pine’s character is described as “mysterious.”
The Wet Hot American Summer series is set to debut this summer, with filming already in progress.
