Along with the pop singer Gomez and British actor Craig, all of the announced cast members have previously worked with Jarmusch. Murray and Sevigny have worked together with the indie director in Broken Flowers. Adam Driver starred in his romantic drama, Paterson. Meanwhile, Steve Buscemi have collaborated with him in Mystery Train and Swinton starred in his fantasy drama, Only Lovers Left Alive.
