The White Lotus star is set to star in the upcoming video game film.

The Minecraft movie has added another cast member, with Jennifer Coolidge joining Jason Momoa and Jack Black in the upcoming video game film, according to Deadline. Coolidge was just in the news after she won her second Primetime Emmy for her role on HBO’s The White Lotus.

The movie is filming now in New Zealand, and it also stars Emma Myers, Danielle Brooks, and Sebastian Eugene Hansen. Jared Hess (Nacho Libre, Napoleon Dynamite) is directing.

Minecraft is an open-ended sandbox video game, so many are wondering what the story is going to be–and that remains a mystery. Hess recently discussed how Minecraft having no set story is a unique challenge, but one he’s excited about taking on.

Hess also recently spoke about the pressure to deliver something good for fans of Minecraft. “I just can’t disappoint the 10-year-olds, or they’re going to murder us,” he said.

The filmmaker and his partner Jerusha recently discussed how there was still one more major casting announcement left for a “funny lady.” That person is now revealed to be Coolidge.

Hess previously directed the movies Nacho Libre and Napoleon Dynamite, and co-wrote those films with Jerusha. The Minecraft film is set to hit theaters in April 2025; keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
