“Saturday Night Live” alums Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have joined forces on a project for Lifetime. Writing in The Hollywood Reporter, Lesley Goldberg writes that the movie, “A Deadly Adoption,” has been produced in secrecy.
“Set for a likely early summer debut, Ferrell and Wiig star in the dramatic thriller as a successful couple who house and care for a pregnant woman (played by ‘90210’ alum Jessica Lowndes) with the hopes of adopting her unborn child — then things quickly go awry,” Goldberg writes. “The movie is described as campy and fun and a contemporary wink at the genre that comes as Lifetime is poised to mark the 25th anniversary of its TV movie business.”
Filming has reportedly already been completed on the two-hour movie.
