The Machines will hit Netflix on April 30, with Teigen and Legend joining a truly ridiculous cast including Abbi Jacobson, Maya Rudolph, Eric Andre, Olivia Colman, and Danny McBride.

There's no word on Teigen and Legend's characters yet, but Jacobson plays the lead role of soon-to-be film student Katie Mitchell in the movie, which is written and directed by Michael Rianda and Jeff Rowe. Here's the synopsis, according to Deadline: "While driving to campus, she and her family come across a tech uprising, which leaves them to figure out how to save the world."
