With a daily dose of America’s Sweetheart on The Drew Barrymore Show – now EW’s exclusive trailer is out for the upcoming comedy The Stand-In. All set to be out on December 11 on VOD and digital services, the doubles are — on the iconic actress and her signature charm. While the upcoming film is a showcase for the free-spirited charisma synonymous with the beloved actress’ name, But I’m a Cheerleader filmmaker Jamie Babbit says fans can expect a classic Drew Barrymore performance mixed with tinges of refreshing darkness unlike anything we’ve seen from her before.

“The great thing about Drew is she really is a spontaneous, magical creature,” Babbit explains of working with Barrymore on the project, which she pitched to the actress while directing an episode of their Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet, eventually courting the 45-year-old as both a producer and star. “She got to go to a darker place [to] show her range. It was fun to see the two Drews battle each other out.”

When Babbit says “battle,” she means battle. Sure, metaphorical tussles of the soul abound, but Barrymore also dukes it out with herself in dual roles, both as a burned-out Hollywood star, Candy, and her bubbly, wide-eyed stand-in, Paula, who temporarily trade places beyond the set when the former is ordered to rehab and ends up clinging to more than just her doppelgänger’s stint in treatment. Boyfriends? Fair game. Celebrity lifestyle? Paula’s for the taking.

The film marks Barrymore’s first feature in five years, and Babbit feels the script (sent to her by British Peep Show writer Sam Bain) spoke to both industry veterans beyond its spectacular surface.

There is the ride are a revolving door of actors Babbit that has amassed over her expansive career in film and television, including The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Michael Zegen, Girls’ Andrew Rannels and Lena Dunham, Russian Doll’s Charlie Barnett, T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley), as well as Ellie Kemper and Holland Taylor. But the centerpiece, Babbit maintains, is Barrymore’s masterclass in tonal range. And, near the end of production, it started feel like the Barrymores had multiplied beyond borders of the screen.

“It was complicated to produce,” Babbit recalls. “But we had a fabulous acting double who played the other character in the scenes with Drew [and], absolutely, she had a stand-in, a stunt double, an acting double… there were multiple Drews all over the set!”

Fingers are crossed for that sequel.

The Stand-In is set for digital release on December 11. Watch EW’s exclusive trailer above.
