First-time feature director Boots Riley already has a solid cast assembled for his new drama Sorry To Bother You, with Tessa Thompson, Lakeith Stanfield and Steven Yeun all ready to co-star. He's adding another name to the line-up, as Armie Hammer is joining the ensemble.

Written by Riley, the film finds a black telemarketer struggling with self-esteem issues who suddenly discovers the key to business success. But as he's propelled to the upper echelons of his company, his activist friends are making their own stand against unfair labour practices. And then he also uncovers his corporate overlords' dark secret, which leads to him deciding whether to stand up or sell out.

As with the other cast members, Hammer's role has yet to be announced, though we could see him as a smugly successful corporate type in need of a little comeuppance. Riley is starting production on the movie this month in Oakland.

Hammer will be heard in Pixar's Cars 3, due out here on 14 July. He also has festival favourite Call Me By Your Name (27 October) and Final Portrait (18 August) headed our way this year.
