kristen-wiig--the-diary-of-a-teenage-girl-imageFirst up from THR is news that Wiig and Skarsgard will star in The Diary of a Teenage Girl.  Heller’s directorial debut, also starring Bel Powley (Side by Side) in her American film debut, is based on Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel of the same name and “follows a teen artist (Powley) living in San Francisco in the ’70s who attempts to navigate her way through an affair with her mother’s boyfriend.”  The film is currently shooting in San Francisco.

Heat Vision reports that Morgan will star as the villain in Cuarón’s Desierto.  The thriller “centers on a group of illegal immigrants who try to cross the border but run afoul of a man (Morgan) who has taken up border patrol duties in his own racist hands.”  Bernal plays one of the immigrants.

Finally, The Wrap reports that Wilson will join He’s F-ing Perfect.  The Universal comedy stars Seyfried as “a girl who’s pessimistic about love and uses social media to vet her friends’ dates. When she finds what looks like the perfect guy, she decides to use her web-sleuthing skills to turn herself into his perfect match.”  Wilson stars as Seyfried’s best friend and roommate, a carefree girl who tries to dissuade her from finding everything out about a boy before meeting him.
