Kristen Wiig’s post-Bridesmaids movie career has been a little bumpy: She didn’t have much to do, for instance, in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty or Anchorman 2. But the first trailer for The Skeleton Twins hints that her next film may finally find her in a starring role again.
Wiig appears in the movie alongside Bill Hader. From Sundance, Jeff Labrecque described The Skeleton Twins as “a full-on drama” where Wiig and Hader “play Maggie and Milo, twins who used to be close but now live on different sides of the country. Neither is particular happy with their lives, and when they both narrowly avoid death on the same day, they end up reuniting and confronting the issues that have kept them apart.”
The movie also stars Luke Wilson as Wiig’s husband and is produced by Mark Duplass, who starred in director Craig Johnson’s 2009 debut feature True Adolescents.
The Skeleton Twins will be in theaters on September 19th, 2014.
