Rachel Zegler to star in Y2K

21-year-old star Rachel Zegler has been cast in upcoming disaster comedy ‘Y2K’.

The ‘West Side Story’ American actress and singer features in a starry ensemble that also includes Jaeden Martell, Julian Dennison and Mason Gooding.

The film is being directed by Kyle Mooney and the cast is rounded out by Alicia Silverstone, Lachlan Watson, The Kid Laroi, Tim Heidecker, Eduardo Franco, Miles Robbins, Fred Hechinger and Daniel Zolghadri.

The movie is set on New Year’s Eve 1999 and follows two high school nobodies (Martell and Dennison) as they decided to crash the final big party before the new millennium.

When the clock strikes midnight, the party gets more insane than they could ever have imagined.

Evan Winter has written the script for the film and is producing with Jonah Hill, Matt Dines and Ali Goodwin.

Rachel stars in the new superhero sequel ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ as Anthea and revealed that it came at the ideal time in her career as she found it difficult to get acting work during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I needed a job. I’m being so serious. The reality was we were in the middle of a pandemic, and I was not working. I couldn’t get a job for the life of me because ‘West Side Story’ hadn’t come out yet.

“It was really hard to book work for me, so I was really excited when this came in my inbox. I love the first movie, and the fact that they even wanted me to come in for a callback, and then a chem read and then everything in between. I’m so lucky that I got this job.”

Rachel Zegler is an American actress and singer who gained fame for being cast as Maria in Steven Spielberg’s 2021 film adaptation of the musical “West Side Story.” Zegler, who is of Colombian and Polish descent, was selected from over 30,000 auditionees for the role.

Prior to her breakout role in “West Side Story,” Zegler had gained a following on social media for her covers of popular songs. She had also played the lead role in a high school production of “Maria” in her hometown of New Jersey.
