The live-action movie is getting more exciting with the addition of the Oscar-nominated actress and the TV star.

Oscar-nominated actress has been cast in "", and so has TV star . Both actress' roles in the live-action movie directed by Jon M. Chu are still unknown.

"Jem and the Holograms", which is based on the 1980s animated TV series of the same name, had previously cast as Jem, as Kimber, Aurora Perrineau as Shana, as Aja, and as Jem's love interest Rio. It is said to be a modern take on the classic series.

According to the synopsis, an orphaned teenage girl becomes an online recording sensation. She and her sisters embark on a music-driven scavenger hunt - one that sends them on an adventure across Los Angeles in an attempt to unlock a final message left by her father.

Production is already underway but some of the characters are yet to get actors. Lewis' role presumably is a singing one. Outside acting, she served as the vocalist of rock band Juliette and the Licks before she went solo.

"Jem and the Holograms" is yet to have an official release date but is due next year.
