Kristen Wiig will star in the MGM adaptation of the highly anticipated Chandler Baker novel The Husbands. Wiig and Baker are set to produce as well, with Baker adapting for the screen, marking her feature screenwriting debut.

Deadline reports, “The Husbands follows an overworked mother who, while house hunting in a nice suburban neighborhood, meets a group of high-powered women with enviably supportive husbands. When she agrees to take on a legal case involving the untimely death of one resident’s husband, she risks exposing not only the secrets at the heart of her own marriage but the true secret to having it all, one worth killing for.”

Wiig is currently co-writing the untitled Cinderella Evil Stepsisters film for Disney with writing partner Annie Mumolo, and will be lending her voice for the next installment of the Despicable Me franchise. She is currently in production on the limited series MacGruber 2 for NBC’s Peacock, starring and co-written by Will Forte.
