“Nichole is an incredible addition to the cast of Lazer Team,” said Fabelo in a statement. “We’re excited to put her comedic prowess and talent to work in this new adventure as we send these other four idiots into space.”
Released last year, the original Lazer Team is among the most successful crowdfunded films of all time thanks to an Indiegogo campaign which raised more than $2.4 million.
