Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, who co-wrote the screenplay to the 2011 blockbuster that launched Wiig's career as a film star, are re-teaming for a new comedy about “best friends who find themselves in over their heads and out of their depths, which were, perhaps, not too deep to begin with," according to the New York Times. In addition to co-writing and co-starring in the film with Mumolo, Wiig will also make her directorial debut on the project.
“We’re very excited to be writing,” said Wiig and Mumolo in a statement to the Times. “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.”
