Leonardo DiCaprio was one of the last to be cast in “Don’t Look Up.”

He revealed that he had previously committed to other films.

However, he said he always wanted to do a film about “this subject matter.”

He says that creator Adam McKay “cracked the code.”

He said that now was the perfect time to release a movie like this.

“This is such an insane time for the worldwide population to be experiencing the same thing.”

He described it as “such a lightning rod of an issue.”

He added that he also happens to be a huge fan of Adam McKay!

“Don’t Look Up” is available to stream on Netflix.
