& Bill Hader
– what a perfect combination
! I guess that director Craig Johnson
(man who stands behind True Adolescents
, by the way) shares my opinion, because we’ve just learned that both Wiig and Hader are now on board to star in his upcoming indie project titled The Skeleton Twins
! And yes, of course it’s going to be a comedy!
Yeah, it looks that Wiig and Hader are attached to play characters named Maggie and Milo, estranged twins who coincidentally cheat death on the same day, prompting them to reunite and confront how their lives went so wrong.
Thanks to Variety
, we have even more plot details:
For Maggie, that means re-examining her marriage to sweet “nature frat boy” Lance while her gay brother Milo revisits his old flame Rich, a former teacher with a past he’d rather keep quiet. As the twins’ reunion reinvigorates them both, they realize the key to fixing their lives may lie in fixing their relationship with each other.
is also on board, and he will portray that nature frat boy
At the end, let us also mention that Johnson will direct The Skeleton Twins
from a script he co-wrote with Mark Heyman
, and filming should start at the end of the month in New York.
As usual – we’ll keep an eye on this comedy, so stay tuned!
