CATEGORIES Movie NewsKristin Wiig, the former "Saturday Night Live" cast member who recently signed on for the hotly anticipated sequel to "Anchorman," has agreed to spend more time with Ron Burgundy himself, Will Ferrell, this time in the indie comedy "Welcome to Me." The movie will be produced by Ferrell and "Anchorman" director Adam McKay and directed by McKay's wife, Shira Piven.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the screenplay, by Eliot Laurence, is about "a woman with dissociative personality disorder who wins the lottery and decides to spend her winnings on a cable access talk show about her life." Sounds kind of bizarre. And pretty awesome.
Following the wildly successful "Bridesmaids," Wiig has been on a role and has a number of movies (including animated sequel "Despicable Me 2" and the big budget Ben Stiller vehicle "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty") awaiting release. Ferrell, for his part, continues to be one of the funniest people on planet earth. Besides "Anchorman 2," which is due out this Christmas, Ferrell has the football comedy "Three Mississippi" coming up as well as a voice role in 2014's "LEGO" movie.
