Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrell Team Up for an Indie Comedy about Mental Illness

Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrell are teaming up for a new, dark indie comedy that sounds more like Silver Linings Playbook than Bridesmaids. In Welcome to Me, Wiig will play a woman suffering from dissociative personality disorder who decides to start her own cable access show after winning the lottery. The film is set to be directed by Shira Piven, wife of Anchorman: The Legend Continues director Adam McKay (a film that also happens to star both Wiig and Ferrell). As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Wiig has been pretty busy lately. The former SNL star recently wrapped five new films: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Despicable Me 2, Girl Most Likely, The Skeleton Twins and Hateship, Loveship
