First off, we are ecstatic to hear that Kirsten Dunst and Lizzy Caplan—stars of two of the best teen comedies of the 00′s (Bring It On and Mean Girls, in case you’re confused)—will be doing a movie together. Not only that, it’s a comedy produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, also starring the underrated Casey Wilson (SNL, Happy Ending). Awesome! Here’s the catch: it’s about bridesmaids who hate each other!! Because all women in their 20s and 30s are secretly resentful of their friends and/or only care about getting hitched, right? At least that’s what seems to be the message from Hollywood these days.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script currently known as The Bachelorette concerns three best friends (Dunst, Caplan, likely awesome actress to be named later) who serve as Wilson’s bridesmaids despite calling her “pigface” in high school. Phrases like “a Playboy Bunny body with a Larry David brain” and “your best friend and your worst enemy” are used to describe the ladies, so gauge your excitement accordingly. The film, to be written and directed by Terriers scribe Leslye Headland, should shoot this summer if the stars align (and especially if Bridesmaids is a hit, we’d guess).
