Kristen Wiig Joining Up with American Splendor Directors for Dark Comedy

By

Imogene is the name of a new dark comedy starring Kristen Wiig by the husband-wife duo Shari Spring Berman and Robert Pulcini, who directed American Splendor. It certainly sounds less silly than we’re used to seeing Wiig. Here’s what she has to say about the plot: “It’s basically about a girl who kind of pretends to kill herself. Starting off really funny, isn’t it? She does it to get her recently ex-boyfriend’s attention. She ends up having to go live with her mom, whom she hasn’t seen in years. It’s kind of about going back home, so she finds her life again and gets reintroduced to her family, kind of a coming home story.” [via]
