Judd Apatow To Produce Kristen Wiig Comedy
The SNL star has written and will star in an untitled comedy that sees a group of women fighting it out in order to host a friend’s wedding. Now the project has the backing of funnyman Judd Apatow, it should really get moving now.
This will be Wiig’s first lead role but before production starts she’ll be getting plenty of practice in; she’s got several films coming out in the next year, most notably Pegg and Frost’s Paul and How To Train Your Dragon.
The project will also be giving director Paul Frieg a leg up in the game; so far he’s mostly directed TV comedies like the US Office, 30 Rock and Arrested Development. With a mix of Apatow, Wiig and Freig, this project looks better and better.
