Comic Mike Birbiglia has started production on his follow-up film to his breakout debut, 2012’s Sleepwalk With Me.
Titled DON’T THINK TWICE, the dramedy follows an improv group that 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 television —spurning bitterness and backstabbing between friends when they come to terms with the fact that maybe they’re not all gonna make it.
Birbiglia scripted the comedy and is also directing and starring along with Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard. A jack of all trades, Birbiglia will also produce, along with Cold Iron’s Miranda Bailey and Amanda Marshall. Ira Glass and Film Arcade’s J. Beck and Andy Bohn will be executive producing.
Birbiglia most recently appeared in Amy Schumer’s hilarious summer comedy Trainwreck. He’s repped by UTA.
Key is repped by UTA and Principato/Young Entertainment. Jacobs is repped by UTA and Authentic Talent. Micucci is repped by WME and Principato/Young Entertainment. Sagher is repped by UTA and Thruline. Gethard is repped by APA and AGI Entertainment Media & Management.
