Julia Stiles and America Ferrera are set to star in It’s a Disaster, a comedy about four couples who meet for Sunday Brunch only to discover they are stuck in a house together as the world may be about to end. A film by Vacationeer Productions, It’s a Disaster will be directed by Todd Berger, who also wrote the script.
Kevin M. Brennan, Jeff Grace, Blaise Miller, and Todd Berger of comedy troupe The Vacationeers will also star in the film, which will shoot in Los Angeles in early fall and is currently in pre-production.
Todd Berger is the writer behind the Lionsgate/Jim Henson Co. film Happytime Murders and also wrote and directed The Vacationeers’ first feature film, The Scenesters. The Scenesters won the “Rosebud Award” at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival, was one of the top 20 downloaded Independent films on iTunes in it’s first week, and was released theatrically by Monterey Media in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Phoenix.
“It’s a crazy story and I was convinced Julia and America would think I’m crazy too, but I’m thrilled they get my sense of humor. I’m excited to have them on board,” said Berger.
