Kristen Wiig film ‘Imogene’ renamed

Lionsgate, Roadside to release 'Girl Most Likely' on July 19

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have retitled Kristen Wiig’s “Imogene” as “Girl Most Likely” and set a July 19 domestic opening for the comedy.

Lionsgate and Roadside jointly acquired U.S. distribution rights to the movie in September following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Wiig portrays a washed-up playwright who fakes her own suicide as a ploy to get the attention of her ex-boyfriend and winds up remanded to the custody of her dysfunctional family. Annette Bening plays the gambling-addicted mother; Matt Dillon, Christopher Fitzgerald and Darren Criss also star.

The “American Splendor” helming team of Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman direct from a screenplay by Michelle Morgan.

Producers are Celine Rattray (“The Kids Are All Right”) and Trudie Styler under their Maven Pictures banner, with Anonymous Content’s Alix Madigan and Mark Amin. “Imogene” is exec produced by Wiig, Morgan, Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Miranda Bailey.

Justin Chang gave the movie a mixed review for Variety at Toronto: “An able cast, led by Kristen Wiig’s prickly lead turn, saves this uneven, excessively quirky but ultimately ingratiating story of a mopey Manhattanite forced to return to her inglorious New Jersey roots for an extended period of self-rediscovery.”
