According to multiple sources, Kristen Wiig has officially signed on to star in the upcoming Welcome to Me that we reported about about two months ago.Cargo International has picked up international rights for the film which it is currently selling at the Cannes Film Festival. The dramatic comedy is produced by BRON Studios, Gary Sanchez Productions and Kristen Wiig is also a producer. Directing is Shira Piven from a screenplay by Eliot Laurence. The film will begin production in California this summer. Welcome to Me tells the story of Alice who suffers from dissociative personality disorder and wins the lottery only to decide to spend her money on a cable access talk show about herself. The show reflects her larger-than-life personality and absolute obsession with wanting to be famous, even if it means alienating her friends and family in the process. This sounds like a project made for Kristen Wiig, don’t you think?

Kristen Wiig would like you to know that she looks fabulous for 72 (“73 in August”). And it’s true—she could totally pass for a woman in her 30s. Sitting in New York’s Greenwich Hotel, Wiig is wearing a black minidress, a matching jacket, and flat Repetto boots that make her feet look “freakishly small.” Her hair is back to a reddish color after a stint on the dark side, and following two months in Los Angeles she has something resembling a tan. “Sometimes I tan a little,” she says, “but I’m not like tan.” Then she orders a glass of red wine.
I first met Wiig (provenance of name, Norway; upbringing of person, Rochester, New York) at a movie premiere in 2009. She was then four years into Saturday Night Live, and its undisputed star. We saw each other again at an SNL party, and she was the warmest person there. “A barbecue place, right?” she recalls. “Basically a barn.”
It was two years before Bridesmaids, which she cowrote (with Annie Mumolo) and starred in, and which made almost $300 million at the box office, prompting both a belated realization that “female” comedies could make money and an instant demand for a sequel. It was a proposal that Wiig, despite being offered the world, immediately rejected. “It wasn’t a hard decision,” she says. “We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that’s not my goal in my creative life.”
Yesterday Kristen Wiig was spotted doing some reshoots for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in the middle of Manhattan. She was photographed alongside director/actor/producer Ben Stiller for the scene (originally filmed on May 30 a year ago). Check out 24 photos from the set in our photo gallery.
