Kristin Wiig Set for Passion Project IMOGENE

     July 12, 2011

Coming off the wild success of Bridesmaids, the highest grossing female R-rated comedy of all time (and the sixth highest grossing romantic comedy), Kristen Wiig has a bit of clout. The actress is using the momentum from the Judd Apatow-produced film to get a passion project of hers off the ground: Imogene. Variety reports that the actress has been trying to get the project moving for two years now, and production is finally set to begin on August 8th.

Wiig will star in the film as a New York playwright who fakes suicide in order to get the attention of her ex-boyfriend. The plan backfires, however, and she’s sent to live with her gambling-addicted mother. Michelle Morgan wrote the screenplay and Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor) are set to direct. In addition to starring in the film, Wiig will serve as executive producer.
