Kristen Wiig Joins Cate Blanchett in ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’
Kristen Wiig just landed another starring movie role. According to Deadline, Wiig has joined the cast of Where’d You Go, Bernadette based off Maria Semple’s bestselling 2013 novel. Richard Linklater will direct the film, which follows “a once famous Los Angeles architect-turned-recluse who disappears, prompting her techie husband and her 15 year-old daughter Bee to go on a quest to find her.” Cate Blanchett will star as Bernadette, and Wiig will play Audrey, “an uptight and intense mother who annoys Bernadette. She is one of the gnats of Seattle who the main character cannot stand and Wiig’s character puts a priority on making life difficult for Bernadette. She also takes pride in her garden and is devastated when Bernadette ruins it.” The film has been in development since 2012.
