Kristen Wiig wants to be a Clown Girl

05.06.2010

I think it's fair to say that Kristen Wiig is a funny chick that most of us look forward to seeing in anything.

Well, the ambitious Wiig is trying to get her own project off the ground. The comedienne is using her own money to option Clown Girl, a novel written by Monica Drake.

Wiig will adapt the novel into a script about a heroine named Nita. Nita is barely scraping by in Baloneytown as a street clown called Sniffles. She's also pining after a guy who used her to finance his way through clown school. Because of this, Nita barely has any money to her name and is resisting making big money by means of prostitution to men with "clown fetishes".

The novel was published back in 2007 by Hawthorne Press.

Wiig can be seen next on the 21st in MACGRUBER starring Will Forte and Val Kilmer.

Extra Tidbit: Wiig is still a cast member on SNL. When was the last time that show was actually funny every Saturday?

THe novel was wonderfully strange all while being legitimately funny and morose at the same time. I hope that this does really well.

Sounds creepy

Interesting "new idea", but clown fetishism doesn't do much for me.

Extra tidbit, I think SNL was funny when the election was about to happen with Palin and McCain impersonation. That was funny. And Mark Wahlberg talks to animal was real funny.

Sweet!

Love the book and Wiig would do a good job with it. She could even be Nita as well.

And just so you know, Monica Drake is from Chuck Palahniuk's writers' group.

I luv this girl! One of the most original SNL's cast members to come down the pike. I enjoy her mainly cameo appearances on film up to this point.

Im so tired of Kristin Wiig. I'll be happy when she's not in every comedy anymore.

I do agree she could do with a little less exposure, but I don't think personally she's overstayed herself just yet.

Actually, she could be one of the first really good movie comediennes in a very long time (Fey and Poehler are more TV).
