‘Welcome to Me’ casting additions
According to Deadline Hollywood, Wes Bentley, Joan Cusack, James Marsden and Alan Tudyk have joined the cast of Welcome to Me starring Kristen Wiig and produced by Gary Sanchez Productions and Bron Studios. Directing is Shira Piven, from a screenplay by Eliot Laurence. The film – which began production in California yesterday – tells the story of Alice (Wiig) who suffers from borderline 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. The dramatic comedy is produced by Aaron L. Gilbert and Marina Grasic with Margot Hand as co-producer on behalf of Bron Studios. For Gary Sanchez Productions, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum are producers. Kristen Wiig is also a producer.
