Kristen Wiig has signed up to portray a playwright who fakes a suicide attempt in new film Imogene
Hot on the heels of her success in Bridesmaids, the Saturday Night Live regular is also set to executive produce the movie, which will be made by Trudie Styler's new production company Maven.
Imogene, set in New York, will focus on Kristen's character as she attempts to win back her ex-boyfriend - only to end up in the care of her gambling mother after she pretends to try and kill herself.
It's been a busy year for Kristen, who starred alongside Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Paul, headed up Bridesmaids' ensemble cast, and has been shooting Friends With Kids with Megan Fox.
