“Bridesmaids” star Kristen Wiig will co-star with Robert De Niro in the drama “The Comedian,” which will be directed by Sean Penn.

Entertainment Weekly reported that according to a film synopsis by FilmNation, De Niro will play Jackie Burke, a comic who once had a prominent TV character but is now trying to revive his career. The synopsis reads: “After being sentenced to community service for hitting an audience member in the head with his microphone, Jackie meets Harmony (Wiig), a dazzling and defiant redhead who turns his life sideways.”

Filming is expected to begin this spring.
