EXCLUSIVE: Twin comedy writers Shea (pictured on the left) and Evan Mirzai, who last month scored their second Black List mention in two years, have signed with Resolution. The brothers’ romantic comedy script Doppelgangers made the scripting kudos list in 2012 before their action comedy spec Diablo Run earned a spot in 2013’s edition.That makes the Mirzais one of just four Black List repeaters in 2012 and 2013. Said script, about two best friends road tripping in Mexico who are forced to enter a thousand-mile death race with no rules, landed them representation at Resolution and will be produced by Atmosphere Entertainment’s Mark Canton, David Hopwood, and Matthew Einstein. Resolution’s Martin Spencer and Remington Franklin will rep the pair on the feature lit and talent side while Ian Greenstein handles TV. Meanwhile, the Mirzai brothers are developing a TV comedy pilot with BroBible founder/CEO Douglas Banker, Alex Garinger, and Banker’s Five All In The Fifth Entertainment shingle. They’re also exec producing two TV projects for YouTube act FatAwesome. The currently unmanaged duo is repped by Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson and Binder.
