Lynch was most recently seen in “White Orchid,” and Sadler is best known for his work on “The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Mist.” Mann was last seen in “Kong: Skull Island.”

Hancock is repped by CAA; Costner is repped by WME; Harrelson is repped by CAA; Bates is repped by ICM; Dickens is repped by the Gersh Agency; Mann is repped by Industry Entertainment and UTA; Lynch is managed by Suskin Management; Sadler is repped by INSURGE-Ent; Fusco is repped by UTA; and Frank is repped by CAA.
