Photos: ‘Going The Distance’ HD Screencaps

Sorry for the lack of updates on here. I have been working on the photo gallery tons offline sorting through decades of photos and dozens of films. Once I’ve sorted everything I can update things more frequently. In the meantime, I’ve added HD screencaps of Drew from her 2010 film Going The Distance. Big thanks to my friend Jennifer for her help. Enjoy!

Drew Barrymore to play dual roles in rom-com The Stand-In

EW.com has shared that Drew has been cast in a new film!

We’ll be getting double the Drew Barrymore in her next movie. Following her role on Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet, the actress has landed dual parts in a new romantic-comedy, The Stand-In.

Directed by Silicon Valley executive producer Jamie Babbit and written by Sam Bain, the film sees a washed-up actress (Barrymore) hiring her unemployed stand-in (also Barrymore) to complete court-ordered community service when she’s busted for tax evasion. Soon, she starts using her double for all other aspects of her life, which leads the stand-in to take over her identity, her boyfriend, and her career.

Barrymore, who’s been just as active behind the camera as she has in front, will also produce the film with Ember Truesdell, Chris Miller, and Nancy Juvonen-Fallon through Flower Films. Tom McNulty will also produce for Exchange.

The Stand-In marks the latest big-screen feature from Babbit since 2015’s Addicted to Fresno. With the cult hit But I’m a Cheerleader under her belt, she has largely moved into the TV realm, directing episodes of HBO’s Girls, FXX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Fox’s The Orville, and Netflix’s Girlboss.

Barrymore, meanwhile, is planning her return for season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet, which was announced in March.

Toni Collette & Drew Barrymore Will Make You Weep (& Giggle)

Refinery 29 did this great article talking about Drew’s new film Miss You Already!

Toni Collette really wanted Drew Barrymore to be her best friend — in a movie, that is. And she got her wish: In Miss You Already, out November 6, the two play longtime pals. Milly (Collette) is undergoing cancer treatment when Jess (Barrymore) learns she is pregnant.

Collette wrote to Barrymore “begging” her to be in the film. Why Barrymore? “She’s the ultimate girls’ girl,” Collette explains during a recent interview in New York, as her co-star sits beside her. “She’s so vocal about all things female. She’s strong and grounded and emanates an amazing warmth. And if you’re thinking about, oh, who would I like to play my best friend? It’s kind of a no-brainer.”

Collette’s powers of persuasion worked. “I picked up the family and moved over to London and I showed up and just said, ‘I am here. I want to be with you, I want to support you, I want to be your backbone, I want to challenge you, push you when you need it,'” says Barrymore, who is an editor-at-large for Refinery29. “I think we showed up with a lot of conviction to really have each others’ backs. We just started laughing and had a blast from there on out.”

Despite the trauma inherent in the film’s premise, Milly and Jess’ relationship is defined by the fun they have had together over the years. In one climatic moment, they flee an uncomfortable party in a taxi cab and head for the moors made famous by Wuthering Heights, a book they’ve adored since childhood. Barrymore and Collette just did a lot of “eating and drinking” for off-set bonding. “Which in itself can be wild,” Collette adds.

But wait, you’re thinking, won’t this movie about cancer and female friendship make me weep uncontrollably? Chances are it probably will. New York magazine declared that the movie was “built to make women cry,” comparing it to Beaches and Steel Magnolias.

When we mention the likelihood of sobbing, Collette asks, “But didn’t this movie make you laugh as well? People are forgetting to mention that. It makes you feel many things. It’s not just sadness. It’s ultimately very uplifting and such a celebration of life, and the strength of the love that these two women have for each other is such a positive thing. So I’d hate for the film to just be known as a weepy chick flick because it’s so much more than that.”

Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette tear up talking ‘Miss You Already’

Go ahead and grab a hanky now — and hang onto it!

If 1988’s “Beaches” brought a tear to your eye, get ready for a new female friendship flick that’s sure to get the waterworks going again.

Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette stopped by TODAY Wednesday to talk about their film “Miss You Already,” which focuses on their on-screen BFF bond and how a serious illness for one impacts them both.

Drew Barrymore on Meeting Toni Collette Before Filming Miss You Already

Drew talked with People.com about meeting Toni and about filming together on Miss You Already.

When two actresses meet each other for the first time before filming, there’s no way to predict what the chemistry will be like.

But in Miss You Already, a story about the complexity of female friendship, chemistry was the most important factor for the film. Luckily for Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette, they hit it off right away.

“We unzipped and jumped right in,” Barrymore, 40, tells PEOPLE at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We really got along and we liked each other. We had the electric connection and you can’t fake it. You hope for it, but you don’t know what it’s going to be like when you show up.

Collette, 42, noted that the two women had mutual friends but that they had never really gotten to know each other before taking on the roles. As soon as they began working, though, forming a friendship was “instant and easy,” she said.

Miss You Already tells the story of two lifelong best friends at different crossroads in their lives. Their friendship is put to the test when one starts a family and the other is diagnosed with cancer.

“This [story] is such a celebration of life,” Barrymore says. “You’re not always perfect and weepy. You’re selfish and you’re angry and it’s humorous and you make each other laugh – you’re connected, you’re distant. Lifelong friendship takes so many extraordinary things – it’s birth, it’s death, and that’s what’s all in this film somehow in the most unheavy-handed way.”

Miss You Already made its debut at the film festival on Saturday. It will hit theaters everywhere on Nov. 6.
