Kristen Wiig and and her former SNL co-star Bill Hader are attached to star in the indie comedy "The Skeleton Twins," which will be co-produced by brothers Mark and Jay Duplass and the financier, Venture Forth.

"Black Swan" scribe Mark Heyman wrote the script, which will be directed by Craig Johnson ("True Adolescents"). Luke Wilson is also set to star in the film, which centers on estranged twins Maggie (Wiig) and Milo (Hader) who happen to both cheat death on the same day, causing Maggie to question her marriage to Lance (Wilson), and Milo to return to an ex-lover.

Wiig stars in the upcoming "Imogene," which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival. She also will star opposite Guy Pierce in "Hateship, Friendship." Hader will be in "The To Do List," which releases in February 2013.

This isn't the first big-screen outing in which Hader and Wiig have been cast together; they played goofy husband-and-wife park owners in Greg Mottola's "Adventureland" in 2009.
