Saban Films has released the official trailer for The Stand-In, starring Golden Globe winner Drew Barrymore (Grey Gardens, Santa Clarita Diet) in dual roles in Emmy nominee Jamie Babbit’s (Silicon Valley) upcoming comedy. You can check out the trailer now in the player below!
The Stand-In is the story of a disaffected comedy actress busted for tax evasion and her adoring, ambitious stand-in who she hires to do community service in her place. A co-dependent relationship ensues as the actress begins to use the stand-in in all parts of her life to escape from the stressful demands of fame. Eventually, the stand-in starts to take the actress’s identity, career, and boyfriend and finally kicks her out of her own house.
The star-studded cast also includes Michael Zegen (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Emmy Award nominee Ellie Kemper (Bridesmaids, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), T.J. Miller (Deadpool, Silicon Valley), and Emmy Award-winner Holland Taylor (Two and a Half Men, Legally Blonde). An official selection of The Tribeca Film Festival, the comedy was written by Sam Bain (Four Lions, Magicians) and produced by The Exchange’s Caddy Vanasirikul and Brian O’Shea, Flower Films’ Ember Truesdell and Chris Miller, and Tom McNulty.
Saban Films is executive producing alongside Flower Films’ Drew Barrymore, Nancy Juvonen; Ingenious Media’s Christelle Conan, Anders Erden, Simon Williams, The Exchange’s Nat McCormick, Giovanna Trischitta; Wrigley Media Group’s Misdee Wrigley-Miller, Jayne Hancock, Ross Babbit, Danny Tepper; J3’s John Jencks and Joe Simpson, Jay Taylor, and Sam Bain.
