“The Office” star David Schwimmers’ upcoming “Frozen” sequel is getting ready to hit theaters, the studio announced on Tuesday.
The “Frost” director, who has been cast as the lead role of a young boy in the film, will play “Fyrinnae” and will serve as the studio’s first male lead in a feature film since the 2008 “Fruitvale Station.”
The “Fully Loaded” director is currently directing the sequel to “Fantasy Island,” starring Chris Hemsworth.
Schwimmers will play the role of “Fynnae,” a young male who was a boy in “Fyre” (2014).
He will be joined by Jennifer Garner and Chris Pine, who also co-star in “The Frozen Ground.”
The film is scheduled for release in 2019.
“Fyrnnae is a great addition to our ‘The Frozen’ universe and we’re thrilled to be able to add David to the cast,” Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said in a statement.
“Fynern is a character who will have an impact on the franchise and is already a fan favorite.
We look forward to the journey and hope to share more information with fans soon.”
The “The Great Gatsby” director also wrote and directed “Festival” (2016), the animated comedy-drama about a small-town boy named “Drew” who gets a new job in a festival.
