The writing team behind the Oscar-nominated screenplay for Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, have come up with a new project that Wiig will direct. Very exciting news, especially since directing is often entrusted to the male half of our species. The project is described as: “best friends who find themselves in over their heads and out of their depths, which were, perhaps, not too deep to begin with.”

The pitch-perfect Bridesmaids just gets funnier with each viewing, more than deserving of its Oscar nod and for launching Melissa McCarthy as a major film star.
