Kristen Wiig to Star in Action-Comedy from ‘The Descendants’ Writers

Fresh off their Oscar win this past Sunday, the writing team of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendants) have sold a new script to be put into production. The screenplay is an action-thriller that was bought by Indian Paintbrush.

It is being reported that Kristen Wiig is attached to star in this new movie. She was also nominated for an Oscar for the screenplay to last year’s Bridesmaids, which she still has some buzz from.

There are no details on what the movie is actually about, nor even the name of it. But they do definitely have some buzz-worthy talent attached to the project thus far. It should also be noted that Wiig, Faxon and Rash already have a working history. The three worked together in the LA improv troupe The Groundlings.

We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
