Daisy Ridley And Josh Gad May Star In A Subversive Superhero Movie For Netflix

It sounds like Daisy Ridley is going to have to endure even more of Josh Gad's nerdy, on-set questions about the future of Star Wars.

Netflix just bought the rights to a superhero comedy called Super-Normal, which will co-star Ridley and Gad (who famously grilled her with Star Wars questions on the set of Murder on the Orient Express). Also onboard: Luke Evans, Gad's Beauty and the Beast bestie.

As you might guess from this buddy-casting coup, Gad came up with the idea for the film, which he's developing along with writers Aaron and Jordan Kandell. According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news, "Super-Normal's intent is to make a character-driven subversive take on the genre that Hollywood and the rest of the world loves too much." The package began making the studio rounds last month, attracting so much interest that even Disney reportedly bid on it.

There's no word on when Super-Normal will get rolling but, when and if it does, you'll be able to watch its superhero-themed antics from the comfort of your own home.
