“AdventureLand” duo Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader – also former sparring partners on “Saturday Night Live” – will reunite for “The Skeleton Twins”, a new indie comedy also starring Luke Wilson (“Old School”, “Charlie’s Angels”), reports Variety.
Craig Johnson (“True Adolescents”) directs the film, which the Duplass brothers serve as producers on, in which Wiig and Hader play estranged twins Maggie and Milo, who “coincidentally cheat death on the same day, prompting them to reunite and confront how their lives went so wrong. For Maggie, that means re-examining her marriage to sweet “nature frat boy” Lance (Wilson), 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.”
The movie, based on a script by Mark Heyman, begins lensing at the end of the month in New York.
Singularly, Hader will next be seen in CBS Films’ “The To Do List”, while Wiig is in “Imogene” and Ben Stiller’s “Secret Life of Walter Mitty” remake.
