Mike Birbiglia has a dramatic comedy headed to theaters soon, and he’ll be joined onscreen by an impressive cast of comedy stars. According to The Wrap, Birbiglia is writing and directing a movie called Don’t Think Twice, which will center on “the bitterness and backstabbing that occur in an improv group.” Birbiglia will star in the film alongside Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher, and Chris Gethard. Here’s the full summary:
Produced by Mike Birbiglia, along with Cold Iron Pictures’ Miranda Bailey and Amanda Marshall, and executive produced by Ira Glass and The Film Arcade’s J. Beck and Andy Bohn, Don’t Think Twice is a dramatic comedy about an improv group who loses the lease on their home theater at the same time that one of their cast members gets chosen for the biggest sketch comedy show on TV. It’s about the bitterness and backstabbing that occur between friends when they realize that maybe not everyone’s gonna make it after all.
Production on the film started this week in New York City. Don’t Think Twice will make Birbiglia’s second feature film following 2012’s Sleepwalk with Me.
