‘SNL’ Alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader to Reunite on the Big Screen
Those of you who miss seeing Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader play off each other on ‘SNL‘ will be happy to learn that the duo are reuniting for an indie comedy in which they’ll star as twins. If you ask us, that’s reason enough to get excited about this picture, titled ‘Skeleton Twins.’
As per Variety, ‘Skeleton Twins’ will see Wiig and Hader playing 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 (Luke 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 comedy is being produced by indie darlings Jay and Mark Duplass (‘Cyrus’, ‘Jeff, Who Lives at Home’), while Craig Johnson (‘True Adolescents’) will direct. Johnson also co-wrote the script with Mark Heyman (‘Black Swan’). Production on ‘Skeleton’ Twins’ begins this month in New York, tempting us to burst out a hearty “Live from New York..!”
