From simply the briefest of glances at actress Kristen Wiig's film career post-'SNL,' any hesitance on her part toward that decision should now be erased by the abundance of potential roles she has on deck. Since starring in indie comedy “Imogene” which premiered at TIFF in the fall (review here), she's sidestepped any return to the “Bridesmaids” well for more intriguing fare, such as the ensemble comedy-drama "Hateship, Friendship," but now she may be prepared to take a turn in another major comedy franchise's sandbox instead.

"Bill Hader and I have a project together where we play twins, both incredibly depressed, and it’s actually really serious. It’s already written. It’s called 'The Skeleton Twins.' We’re just hoping that financing will come along soon, but it’s a great project," Anna Faris told Vulture this spring. How things change. Presumably, the comic actress is taking some time to spend with her new baby boy, but luckily for Hader the project is moving on and it now reteams him with an old friend.

Well, congrats to the folks behind "Hateship, Friendship" for managing to keep the details on the downlow, to the point where with the film starting to shoot next week in New Orleans, we're only getting details now. And with a promising cast and solid source material to work from, this is one to keep an eye on.

"Imogene" finds Kristen Wiig in victory lap mode, and that suits her just fine. Perhaps the most likable comedic actress to come down the pike since Diane Keaton threw on a Civil War-era vest and floppy hat, Wiig finds herself, post-"Bridesmaids," in rarified company. She is a beloved, in-demand actress and comedienne, and a star who has something Kristen Stewart and Angelina Jolie would maim for: likability.

Maybe we should call it Annette Bening day. The actress features in two new photos from two films arriving on the film festival circuit. First up is "Imogene," which is a starring vehicle for Kristen Wiig, developed by the 'SNL' comedienne before she took off in "Bridesmaids." Directed by Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman ("American Splendor"), the picture centers on a washed-up playwright (Wiig) who, after faking her own suicide as a ploy to get her ex-boyfriend's attention, winds up remanded to the custody of her wackily dysfunctional family. The picture also co-stars Bening, as you can see by the photo, Matt Dillon and "Glee" star Darren Criss.

Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the directors of "American Splendor," HBO's 2011 drama "Cinema Verite" and the underrated 2010 indie "The Extra Man," return to the world of dark comedy this year with a break-out SNL star as their lead in "Imogene."

Tribeca Review: Despite Myriad Celebrity Cameos 'Revenge For Jolly!' Is Excruciating

Kudos to Brian Petsos, a bit actor who has pulled off an Orson Welles-level achievement in not only nabbing a brilliant cast to star in “Revenge For Jolly!” which he wrote, but also having the clout to save the lead role for himself. Welles did this with his talent, vision and status as a cinematic titan. Petsos, if we’re being charitable, most likely had to resort to blackmail, extortion and/or just plain bribery, as “Revenge For Jolly!” may be the most excruciating 80+ minutes you spend in a theater this year.

Tom Cruise is back baby, and the actor hasn't been slowing down for a second, eager to strike with the moment is still hot. But a side-story to his recent string of movies has been the bevy of beauties he's lined up to star with. Paula Patton and Lea Seydoux prowled "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol"; Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough feature in "Oblivion" and Rosamund Pike stars in "One Shot." And another talented, and yes attractive, lead is lining up for Cruise's next big screen undertaking.
