Kristen Wiig Joins Ghost & Bird

“Knocked Up,” “The Brothers Solomon” and “Saturday Night Live” star Kristen Wiig has landed two film roles this week says Reuters.

Wiig will play the surgeon of Ricky Gervais’ character in the David Koepp-helmed comedy “Ghost Town,” which centers on a dentist (Gervais) who has a near-death experience during routine surgery and gains the ability to see dead people who ask him for help in contacting the living.

She also has been cast as the female lead role opposite Paul Giamatti and Billy Crudup in the indie comedy “Pretty Bird,” written and directed by Paul Schneider.
