Kristen Wiig joins ‘The Skeleton Twins’
The awesome new projects just keep on coming, everyone! Kristen Wiig is set to join her former Saturday Night Live co-star Bill Hader in The Skeleton Twins, an indie comedy that will be a co-production between Jay and Mark Duplass’ banner Duplass Brothers Prods. and financier Venture Forth. Luke Wilson is set to co-star in the pic, which Craig Johnson (True Adolescents) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Mark Heyman (Black Swan). Production is skedded to start at the end of the month in New York.
Wiig and Hader will play estranged twins Maggie and Milo, who coincidentally cheat death on the same day, prompting them to reunite and confront how their lives went so wrong. For Maggie, that means re-examining her marriage to sweet “nature frat boy” Lance (Wilson), while her gay brother Milo revisits his old flame Rich, a former teacher with a past he’d rather keep quiet. As the twins’ reunion reinvigorates them both, they realize the key to fixing their lives may lie in fixing their relationship with each other.
How excited are you for this project?!
