Kristen Wiig and Cameron Diaz sounds like a good combination of funny ladies and it looks like it may well happen, as The Wrap reports that Diaz has signed up for The Other Woman, with Wiig also circling the project.
The movie is about a woman who learns that the man she’s been seeing is actually married. Filled with rage, she decides to tell the man’s wife and the two of them team up for payback. The project is described as being similar to The First Wives Club, but targeting a younger audience.
The script was written by Melissa Stack, who doesn’t have any feature credits but had her first screenplay, I Want To F**k Your Sister, land on the Black List (the annual list of the best unproduced screenplays). That script is currently in development at MTV Films.
It isn’t known how close Wiig is to signing up, but she could certainly be a good sparring partner for Diaz.
