Girl Most Likely

Remember Kristen Wiig's post-"Bridesmaids" pet-project comedy "Imogene" which she executive-produced and starred-in? Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have announced a July 19, 2013 release date for the film, and also a title change. The picture will now be known as "Girl Most Likely."

Penned by relative newcomer Michelle Morgan, and directed by "American Splendor" duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, "Girl Most Likely" is a dark character-driven comedy that centers on a playwright (Wiig) who stages a suicide in an attempt to win back her ex, only to wind up in the custody of her gambling-addict mother. Co-starring Annette Bening, Matt Dillon, Christopher Fitzgerald and Darren Criss, "Girl Most Likely" premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September under its original moniker (you can read our review here). The longform synopsis is as such:

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, once a promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence. Heavily in denial about being dumped by her society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate fake suicide as an appeal for his sympathy. But her attempt backfires when she's put into the custody of Zelda, her estranged gambling addict mother (Annette Bening), and must return home with her to the Jersey shore. Desperate to get back to her Manhattan circle of so- called friends, Imogene must finally deal with her family, including her unique brother (Christopher Fitzgerald), Zelda's new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Darren Criss),who together help Imogene sort out her place in the world.

And it won't be coming out in a limited release either, according to the press release. "Girl Most Likely" will be released theatrically nationwide next summer. Sounds like they have strong counter-tentpole-programming hopes for this one.
