As if Steven Spielberg didn't already have enough anticipation built for his semi-autobiographical new film The Fabelmans, he's only gone and added to it by casting legendary fellow filmmakerDavid Lynch.

The Fabelmans, which is loosely based on the director's (and in this rare case, co-writer with Tony Kushner) own upbringing in Arizona, is largely a mystery in terms of its plot, but we do know it'll chronicle the young life of Sammy Fabelman (Gabriel LaBelle), who dreams of making movies.

The likes of Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Paul Dano, Gabriel Bateman, Judd Hirsch and Julia Butters are all in the cast for this one.

Given that production has wrapped on the film, this either means that Spielberg has gone (or is going back) for some more footage, or that Lynch has already shot his scenes without the media getting a whiff of his presence on set. He could also theoretically be providing a voice-over with his famously laconic tones.

However he appears, The Fabelmans will be out (in the States, at least) on 23 November this year.
