Actor and comedian DC Pierson wrote a novel called The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To, and you can now see part of that book adapted as a short film. See, Pierson and director Dan Eckman (Community, Mystery Team) and producer Meggie McFadden want to turn the novel into a feature, and they’ve made this short as a proof of concept. The cast features Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Dope) and Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games).
In The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep short, Revolori and Quaid play high school friends whose foray into making comics is complicated when Revolori reveals he has the power to manifest ideas into reality. Naturally, that has some pretty huge and funny consequences. Watch the short after the break.
