CNN — Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell have great chemistry just introducing a category at the Golden Globes, so we have high hopes about these two co-stars possibly teaming up again.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wiig is in talks to join Ferrell in a comedy called "Welcome To Me," in which she'd potentially play the lead.
The indie, written by Eliot Laurence, is about a woman with dissociative personality disorder who wins the lottery. She decides to take her newfound wealth and put it toward a cable access talk show about her life.
Ferrell is producing the project with Jessica Elbaum and Adam McKay, who's also directing Ferrell and Wiig in the "Anchorman" sequel. "Welcome To Me," however, is set to be directed by McKay's wife, Shira Piven.
