Looks like the project THE SKELETON TWINS is moving forward, and the lead female actress Anna Faris has been replaced by Kristen Wiig. The film follows a set of twins Maggie and Milo, played by Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, who both somehow manage to sidestep death on the same day and then start to reevaluate their lives. Maggie takes a hard look at her marriage to the nice guy (Luke Wilson), and Milo examines his relationship with his partner Rich. THE SKELETON TWINS is supposed to be part comedy part drama, so I’m sure as soon as filming gets underway we’ll get some more tidbits of information. Production is set to start next month and we should see this at some festivals next year.
Directed by Craig Johnson, THE SKELETON TWINS stars: Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Luke Wilson and Mark Duplass. (Variety)
