In a video announcement posted on Twitter on Demi's 27th birthday (20.08.19), Will said: "Hi everyone, Will Ferrell here on the set of my new movie 'Eurovision'.
"We are having a great time, we just started filming, and we want to make a very special announcement about a brand new cast member.
"It just so happens to be her birthday today and I made her this wonderful cake from scratch. Happy Birthday, yay!"
The movie is Demi's first live-action role since 2010's 'Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam'.
Will and Rachel play Icelandic musicians Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir respectively.
Whilst former James Bond Pierce portrays Will's on-screen father Erick Erickssong.
It was recently confirmed that 'Beauty and the Beast' actor Dan Stevens will play Russian contestant Alexander Lemtov.

Filming will be taking place in Iceland and Tel-Aviv, Israel, although no release date has been set by the streaming service.
