Jessica Chastain (“The Help,” “The Tree of Life”), Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) and comedian Martin Short are set to play Gia the jaguar, Vitaly the Siberian tiger, and Stefano the sea lion respectively.

Frances McDormand and Sacha Baron Cohen also star in this Noah Baumbach-scripted entry which hits cinemas on June 8th.
