James Gray has already his new project in mind !!!! :

We still don’t know what exactly to expect from James Gray’s sci-fi drama “Ad Astra” when it premieres September 20, but we do know what Gray’s lining up next. Variety reports that the “Two Lovers” and “The Immigrant” filmmaker is set to write and direct “Armageddon Time,” an autobiographical drama about growing up in mid-1980s Queens, New York. But wait, there’s more: “Fred Trump, the Queens-based real estate developer who sired Donald Trump, and the current president will appear as characters, although the events will unfold long before there was ever a Trump in the White House.”

RT Features, the production company responsible for “Ad Astra,” is also working with Gray on this next venture. “It’s a personal story for James,” the company’s Rodrigo Teixeira told Variety. “You have the whole world of the Trumps dealing with that school and the students who go to that school.” He added, “James is back in the independent world with this film.”

“RT Features is the best partner a director could ask for — they’ve got great taste, and they know how to support the filmmaker; I’m thrilled to be working with them again,” said Gray in a statement.

Robert De Niro, Oscar Isaac, Donald Sutherland & Anne Hathaway Join Cate Blanchett In James Gray’s ‘Armageddon Time’

Donald Sutherland as the Ice King is perfect casting.
I'm assuming Anne Hathaway plays Princess Bubblegum and Cate Blanchett plays Marcelene?
Oscar Isaac as Finn and Robert De Niro as Jake the Dog, of course.

James Gray's films tend to have great casting, so I'm not too worried. I mean, have we already forgotten how Brad Pitt nailed the role of Steven Universe in Gray's previous gritty Cartoon Network adaptation?
