When You Finish Saving The World already has a major cast lined up including Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard and Julianne Moore, while Jesse Eisenberg will make his directorial debut with the forthcoming movie.

Wolfhard's good friend and Wynonna Earp star Billy Bryk was recently cast in the movie, while Emma Stone and her partner, David McCary (director and writer for Saturday Night Live) are producing on the project.

Alisha Boe is now the latest star to join the cast, Deadline reports. Boe is best known for her role as Jessica Davis in the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

When You Finish Saving The World is inspired by Eisenberg's own Audible project – however, the comedy-drama movie will feature different storylines. The audiobook is set across three decades and plays out across six-parts.

The story is centred around three characters, who are a family unit – the stories are told from the perspective of these characters, and each part of the audiobook shares specific memories in each character's lives.

The three main characters are Nathan, Rachel and Ziggy. Nathan is learning about parenthood as he tries to bond with his young son, Rachel is in college and is trying to find her purpose and discover who she is and Ziggy is a teenager in search of his identity – he wants to know where he came from and find out where he's going.
