Kristen Wiig Attached To Action Comedy From Descendants Writers

It sounds like a perfect comedy match up with ShowBlitz reporting that Kristen Wiig is negotiations to star in an untitled action-comedy from screenwriters Jim Rash and Nat Faxon. The pair recently won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Descendants. Wiig was Oscar nominated this year for co-writing Bridesmaids in the Best Original Screenplay category. The combination of the three is amazing considering Faxon was involved with the bizarre but fun Broken Lizard films, Rash being an integral part of the wacky show Community and Wiig being the funniest person on SNL.

Zero details are known about the project but it landed at Indian Paintbrush, with other studios making their own offers. Paintbrush is a new production company but has an impressive list of films that includes Young Adult, Like Crazy, Seeking A Friend At The End of The World,  Fantastic Mr. Fox, Jeff Who Lives At Home, Moonrise Kingdom and The Darjeeling Limited under their belt. I assume that we should be seeing some really interesting names attaching themselves in supporting roles.
