Clea DuVall has appeared in everything from She’s All That and Girl, Interrupted to Law and Order and American Horror Story and will now be making her directorial debut. The yet-to-be-named film, which DuVall wrote and is also set to star in, will feature two of DuVall’s castmates from 1999’s But I’m a Cheerleader—Natasha Lyonne and Melanie Lynskey. A small, but welcoming reunion. Cobie Smulders, Alia Shawkat, Jason Ritter, Vincent Piazza and Ben Schwartz round out the cast, reports A.V Club.

In But I’m a Cheerleader, which was directed by Jamie Babbit, DuVall and Lyonne starred as two teens who meet after Lyonne’s character is sent to a conversion therapy rehab by her family as an attempt to cure her lesbianism. Lynskey played a fellow camper. DuVall and Lyonne will also appear in the upcoming Babbit-directed Addicted to Fresno, which will star Lyonne as a lesbian hotel maid who helps her recovering sex addict sister, played by Judy Greer. It looks awesome, too:
