It is basically a 'But I'm A Cheerleader' reunion film, and we're very very okay with it.

Clea DuVall is making her directorial debut with her new film The Intervention, which will screen at LA's Outfest Film Festival this Thursday.

The film, which DuVall also wrote and stars in, reunites three of the cast members of iconic lesbian cult film But I'm A Cheerleader, seeing DuVall, Natasha Lyonne and Melanie Lynskey share the big screen once more.

Clea DuVall talks about playing gay characters that are "gay in the way" she is
“I’ve played a lot of gay characters, but I haven’t really played a gay character that is gay in a way that I feel like I am, if that makes sense,” she says.

A dramedy, The Intervention follows four couples on a weekend getaway together, taking a turn for the dramatic when one of the couples realises that the trip was planned so that the others could stage an intervention regarding the state of the couple's marriage. Also starring in the film is Cobie Smulders of How I Met Your Mother, Ben Schwartz of Park and Recreation, Vincent Piazza of Boardwalk Empire, Jason Ritter of Girls, Alia Shawkat of Arrested Development, and David Bernon.

Oh, and if the kick-ass cast isn't enough to excite you, the trailer also features a new Tegan and Sara track. 

We can't wait.
