Published Jul 13, 2016After getting their start with Nick Rutherford in the Good Neighbor comedy troupe, Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett have since thrived as the two best cast members on the current season of SNL. Fortunately, they're finally set to bring their distinct style to the big screen.
Some Redditors [via Splitsider] recently discovered an IMDb listing for a film called Brigsby Bear. The film lists Mooney as a star and writer, and it's being directed by his frequent collaborator (and podcast partner) Dave McCary. Further legitimizing the listing, there's also a press release about the film's shooting from the Utah Film Commission.
In addition to Mooney, the film also stars Clare Danes, Mark Hamill, Andy Samberg, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michaela Watkins and, of course, Beck Bennett. It's also being produced by the Lonely Island's Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone alongside Phil Lord and Chris Miller, among others.
Here's the film's official IMDb synopsis:
Brigsby Bear Adventures is a low-budget children's TV show produced for an audience of one, James. When the show abruptly ends, James realizes that everything about his life is a lie, and he must learn to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about.
In other words, we're already calling Brigsby Bear our favourite comedy of 2017.
