kristen wiigBack in February, it was confirmed that Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig would be joining Will Ferrell in one of the most awaited sequels of 2013, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, as Steven Carrell’s Brick’s love interest.  Now, everything points out that she might be joining Will Ferrell again in director Adam McKay‘s indie film Welcome To Me!  This movie is set to be directed by McKay’s wife, Shira Piven, and will follow a woman with multiple personalities who wins the lottery and spends the money to start her own TV show.  Right off the top of my head, I could not think of any other actress who can pull this out better than Kristen Wiig (maybe Melissa McCarthy?).

Kristen Wiig has become one of the most famous female comedians in recent years.  She has had roles in hits like BridesmaidsHow to Train Your Dragon, and Despicable Me, and is signed for the sequels of the last two movies mentioned.  Given her past as an Saturday Night Live cast member, she is one of the most desired actresses for comedy movies.  It’s no wonder Gary Sanchez Productions wants her for their new indie film!   Stay tuned for more news on this movie!

What do you think?  Is she the right fit for Welcome To Me?
