Lourd landed her breakout role in Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut Booksmart, although she is arguably best known for her roles in American Horror Story and Star Wars. She has featured in four seasons of American Horror Story (Cult, 1984, Apocalypse and Double Feature) as well as an episode of the spin-off series American Horror Stories.

In Star Wars, she appeared in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and The Rise of the Skywalker as Lieutenant Connix opposite her mother, Princess Leia actress Carrie Fisher. She also appears opposite George Clooney and Julia Roberts in the romantic-comedy Ticket to Paradise.

Hanks, another actor with a famous parent (Tom Hanks), is best known for his roles in Peter Jackson’s King Kong, American Crime Story and, recently, The Offer, which depicts the making of Francis Ford Coppola’s classic movie The Godfather. Bea, meanwhile, starred in This Way Up, Home Sweet Home Alone and Judy.

And Mrs. will be directed by Daniel Reisinger, who helmed the uber-successful YouTube Originals series Sideswiped, while playwright Melissa Bubnic will pen the screenplay. There is currently no set release date for the movie.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the entire Skywalker Saga are available on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K now, as well as on Disney+.
