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."

Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and Matt Dillon headline this hilarious comedy about a washed-up playwright 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.

Darren Criss also stars. Michelle Morgan, a SNL pal of Wiig's, wrote the screenplay, and as an exec-producer, the "Bridesmaids" star has been trying to get Morgan's film off the ground for several years now. The success of "Bridesmaids" certainly helped seal the deal for "Imogene." No release date or stateside distributor yet for the film, but we presume "Imogene" will be a hot acquisitions title at TIFF this year.

    I really think Kristen Wiig is at the point where she's just Kristen Wiig, not "Bridesmaids" star Kristen Wiig.
