Kristen Wiig is reteaming with her “Bridesmaids” co-writer Annie Mumolo for a film that will also serve as her directorial debut.
“We’re very excited to be writing. We will be going into a cave for months to finish. An actual cave. We found one that’s nice and big. We’re putting a couch in there,” Wiig and Mumolo say in a joint statement.
“Kristen and Annie assured me that the film will be a searing and depressing drama, which is what the world needs right now. So we grabbed it. Perhaps more to the point, these two supremely talented ladies are always ahead of the comedy curve, and as we at TriStar push for originality, we are lucky as hell to be in business with them,” TriStar Productions’ Tom Rothman tells THR. “The chance to hopefully make Kristen’s first film as a director is the cherry on top.”
