Remember that Kristen Wiig/Annette Bening comedy Imogene that we’ve all been waiting for? It’s finally nabbed a release date (July 19), and a new title — Girl Most Likely – Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions announced Thursday.
In Girl Most Likely, Wiig’s character, Imogene, is a playwright who hasn’t lived up to her potential. She gets dumped, fakes a suicide, and is forced to move home with her mother (Annette Bening), a gambling addict who lives on the Jersey shore where she meets a host of kooky characters while longing for her more glamorous New York life.
Girl Most Likely has been somewhat of a passion project for Wiig, and was one of the more talked about films at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year. Matt Dillon, Darren Criss (Glee), Natasha Lyonne, and comedian June Diane Raphael co-star.
