We’re now two weeks away from Fortune Brainstorm Tech, our annual gathering of the world’s top tech executives, investors and thinkers at the Aspen Institute in Colorado.

Most of our participants had been previously announced, including the CEOs of such companies as Airbnb, Cisco, Disney, Dropbox, DraftKings, Fitbit, Girls Who Code, Google Ventures, Flex, Hyatt Hotels, Intel, Koch Industries, Magic Leap, PayPal, Twilio, Toys ‘R Us, WeWork and Wealthfront.

Today we’d like to reveal some exciting new additions to our line-up:

Thomas Tull and Mary Parent: Legendary Entertainment
Thomas Tull is chairman and CEO of Legendary, the entertainment studio behind such hits as The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Hangover, Steve Jobs and Straight Outta Compton and The Nerdist podcast. Mary Parent recently joined Legendary as vice chairman of worldwide production, after having produced films like The Revenant, Pacific Rim and Godzilla.

Haley Van Dyck, Co-founder, U.S. Digital Service
Haley Van Dyck co-founded the U.S. Digital Service, which works as a quasi-startup inside the White House, helping to bring top tech talent into the government to fix high-impact services and reform how government operates in the digital age. She has been serving in senior government tech roles since the election of President Obama, during whose 2008 campaign she served as deputy director of mobile platforms.

Halt and Catch Fire
The Brainstorm Tech audience will be treated to the Season 3 premiere of AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, a drama set in the 1980’s PC industry. We’ll also have a conversation with show co-creators Christopher Cantwell and Christopher Rogers, executive producer Melissa Bernstein and cast member Toby Huss (who plays John Bosworth).

What I Learned from Bill Campbell
Silicon Valley lost its master coach in April, when longtime executive mentor Bill Campbell passed away. We’ll be closing out Brainstorm Tech with memories of and lessons learned from Bill, with help from some of those who knew him best: Shellye Archambeau, CEO of MetricStream; John Doerr, chairman of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers; and Brad Smith, CEO of Intuit.

Other notable additions include:

Christa Quarles, CEO, OpenTable
David Stern, NBA Commissioner Emeritus
Shane Wall, CTO, HP Inc.
Gretchen West, Senior Advisor on Drones, Hogan Lovells US

Fortune Brainstorm Tech kicks off on Monday, July 11, and the livestream will begin on at 2pm Mountain Time. You can view the full agenda by going here.
