Kristen Wiig is set to try her hand at directing.

The New York Times first reported that the star is penning a film with “Bridesmaids” co-writer Annie Mumolo for TriStar Prods.

Wiig will star in and direct the film which will see her and Mumolo play best friends who find themselves in over their heads and out of their depth. All other plot details are being kept under wraps.

“We’re very excited to be writing,” Wiig and Mumolo said in a statement. “We will be going into a cave for months to finish. An actual cave. We found one that’s nice and big. We’re putting a couch in there.”

“Bridesmaids” scored an Oscar nomination for its screenplay, the film grossing a solid $288 million at the worldwide box office.

“Kristen and Annie assured me that the film will be a searing and depressing drama, which is what the world needs right now,” said Tom Rothman of TriStar Productions. “So we grabbed it. Perhaps more to the point, these two supremely talented ladies are always ahead of the comedy curve and as we at TriStar push for originality, we are lucky as hell to be in business with them. The chance to hopefully make Kristen’s first film as a director is the cherry on top.”
