EW.com has shared that Drew has been cast in a new film!

We’ll be getting double the Drew Barrymore in her next movie. Following her role on Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet, the actress has landed dual parts in a new romantic-comedy, The Stand-In.

Directed by Silicon Valley executive producer Jamie Babbit and written by Sam Bain, the film sees a washed-up actress (Barrymore) hiring her unemployed stand-in (also Barrymore) to complete court-ordered community service when she’s busted for tax evasion. Soon, she starts using her double for all other aspects of her life, which leads the stand-in to take over her identity, her boyfriend, and her career.

Barrymore, who’s been just as active behind the camera as she has in front, will also produce the film with Ember Truesdell, Chris Miller, and Nancy Juvonen-Fallon through Flower Films. Tom McNulty will also produce for Exchange.

The Stand-In marks the latest big-screen feature from Babbit since 2015’s Addicted to Fresno. With the cult hit But I’m a Cheerleader under her belt, she has largely moved into the TV realm, directing episodes of HBO’s Girls, FXX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Fox’s The Orville, and Netflix’s Girlboss.

Barrymore, meanwhile, is planning her return for season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet, which was announced in March.
