Kristen Wiig & Annie Mumolo Making a Disney Movie About Cinderella's Step-sisters!

Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are teaming up for another movie and this one will be made with Disney!

The Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar co-stars will be writing an untitled live-action movie about Cinderella’s evil step-sisters, though they will not be playing the iconic characters.

Deadline reports that it’s still unknown if Kristen and Annie will appear in the movie, but if they do, they won’t play the step-sisters. The lead roles will go to younger actresses.

The movie will be “a fairy tale musical comedy that 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.”

In addition to writing and starring in Barb and Star, Kristen and Annie were nominated for an Oscar for co-writing the Bridesmaids screenplay.

Kristen recently revealed the names of her twins, who were born last year.

Jamie Dornan is bringing the drama!

The 38-year-old actor supplied a thoroughly silly music video for an equally silly song from Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar called “Edgar’s Prayer,” which premiered over the weekend.

In the video, Jamie dramatically climbs a palm tree, performing ballet and singing to the sky shirtless at the beach.

Seagulls in the sand can you hear my prayer? I keep trying but I’m getting nowhere,” he dramatically sings.

He recently opened up about a possibility of a sequel to the funny movie, as well as how many shirts he ripped off on set.

“It’s called Hollywood Awards and Sports Items,” Annie as Barb adds. “They have loads of trophies – because everyone’s a winner.”

Barb & Star's Annie Mumolo Talks Controversy with Her 'Joy' Script, Which Was Rewritten

Annie Mumolo is one of the stars of Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar and she’s also an Oscar-nominated screenwriter.

The 47-year-old actress and writer recently opened up about writing the original screenplay for the 2015 movie Joy and the controversy that surrounded the film.

Joy starred Jennifer Lawrence and was directed by David O. Russell, who decided to rewrite the script that she turned in. The movie was praised for Jennifer‘s performance, but the screenplay didn’t get great reviews.

“The Joy movie was a very heartbreaking experience for me, and I had to just sort of separate because of that aspect of things. When it was going in one direction, we got a phone call overnight that there’s a change happening. And then I was asked to do things that were against my morality, and it was very difficult. When I didn’t feel comfortable doing those things that were against my values, I was lambasted. I can’t say too much. I guess probably because I was living in fear,” Annie told Variety.

She added, “It’s sort of a testament to the power of how in show business, people have a tremendous amount of power and what they can do with it and how they wield that power. Sometimes, the people who have so much power are people who shouldn’t, and in the normal world, they wouldn’t have that much power they’re being given. Judd Apatow told me, ‘”Certain names,” if they are studios, if it’s money and numbers, they don’t care what the behavior is. They just don’t.’ And he said that’s a hard thing. He was a very big advocate for me back then. It was tremendously scary and a life lesson. It was a lot of upheavals, and it was just very strange. It’s something I never saw coming.”
