Though Anchorman: The Legend Continues is still in production, star Kristin Wiig is already set to work with writers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay again in Welcome To Me, an independent picture directed by Shira Piven (Fully Loaded) and written by Eliot Laurence (The Big Gay Sketch Show).
The film is about Wiig’s character spending her lottery winnings on a cable access talk show that revolves around her associative personality disorder. Silver Linings Playbook‘s success means that now’s the best time to get a project like this running, given the pairing of mental illness and comedy being as close to ‘in vogue’ as it’ll ever be.
Wiig’s success in Hollywood since starring in Paul Feig’s Bridesmaids has been something to behold, and has seen her land roles in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Despicable Me 2, Girl Most Likely, The Skeleton Twins, How To Train Your Dragon 2 »
