Kristen Wiig And Annie Mumolo Are Writing A ‘Cinderella’ Evil Stepsisters Project For Disney

It looks like Barb and Star are going to Disney! Deadline is reporting that Bridemaids and Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar masterminds Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are working together once again. This time the comedic duo will work with Disney to make a live action evil stepsisters film.

The upcoming musical comedy “re-imagines the Cinderella classic from the point of view of her infamous evil stepsisters. Spanning their early childhood through the marriage of their universally beloved stepsister and beyond, we follow Anastasia and Drizella Tremaine as they struggle to uphold their family’s legacy.”

Disney is keeping mum whether or not Wiig or Mumolo will appear in the film, though the stepsisters themselves will be played by younger actresses. The pair first worked together in the Groundlings Theater before eventually writing the Oscar nominated script for Bridesmaids. In February, the pair wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar. 

A D.C area native, Cortland has been interested in media since birth. Taking film classes in high school and watching the classics with family instilled a love of film in Cortland’s formative years. Before graduating with a degree in English and minoring in Film Study from Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, Cortland ran the college’s radio station, where she frequently reviewed films on air. She then wrote for another D.C area publication before landing at Punch Drunk Critics. Aside from writing and interviewing, she enjoys podcasts, knitting, and talking about representation in media.
