Kristen Wiig set for her directorial debut!

Posted on June 12, 2014 and filed under Movies

Here’s a fantastic piece of news, everyone! According to The New York Times (and other multiple sources), Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo will write, produce and star in a wide-release comedy for TriStar Productions, which described the film as the story of “best friends who find themselves in over their heads and out of their depths, which were, perhaps, not too deep to begin with.” The plot involves a town called Vista Del Mar. Not only that, Kristen is also set to make her directorial debut with the film! A release date has not been set. Here’s what the duo said of the project:

“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 added: “I’ve been wanting to direct for some time now. This seems like the perfect first project.”

Variety continues to report that TriStar’s Tom Rothman said: 

“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. The chance to hopefully make Kristen’s first film as a director is the cherry on top.”
