The film, directed by Adam McKay, boasts one of the most glittering ensemble casts in recent Hollywood history.
McKay, whose films include Step Brothers, Vice and The Big Short, tweeted: “Can’t wait to work with all of these talented actors.”
Don’t Look Up tells the story of two low-level astronomers who go on a media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy planet Earth.
The film is reportedly expected to begin filming later this year.
Hollywood actor DiCaprio will next star in Killers Of The Flower Moon, which will be directed by his frequent collaborator Martin Scorsese.
