After creating a long line of viral videos, SNL’s Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett, along with director Dave McCary, have started production on their first feature film.
The movie, entitled Brigsby Bear, focuses on “Brigsby Bear Adventures, a low-budget children’s TV show produced for an audience of one, James and the fall out after the show abruptly ends and James realizes that everything about his life is a lie, and that he must learn to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about.”
Mooney will play James with Andy Samberg, Claire Danes, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michaela Watkins and Matt Walsh, all making appearances as well.
Mark Hamill, another Hollywood heavy hitter who has signed on to appear in the movie, was recently spotted by one of our readers, @Slake03, at the Courtyard by Marriott in Salt Lake City, Utah, where the movie is about to begin filming!
