Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are teaming up again to write, produce and star in a new untitled comedy for TriStar Productions, according to The New York Times. The company described the film as “best friends who find themselves in over their heads and out of their depths, which were, perhaps, not too deep to begin with.”
Wiig will be making her directorial debut and added that she has wanted to direct.
“This seems like the perfect first project,” she said.
Wiig and Mumolo also added they “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.”
TriStar’s chairman, Thomas E. Rothman, revealed no details when asked about the film’s tone, telling the New York Times that “Kristen and Annie assured me that the film will be a searing and depressing drama, which is what the world needs right now.”
“Bridesmaids” was a comedic female-driven hit in 2011 that earned an Oscar nomination and made $288 million at the box office.
