Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"), Dianne Wiest (The Birdcage), and Matt Lucas ("Little Britain", Alice in Wonderland) are saving the date for "Saturday Night Live" star Kristen Wiig's untitled wedding comedy.


The project, which Wiig co-wrote with first-time feature writer Annie Mumolo, centers on two women who fight for the opportunity to plan their friend's wedding party. Wiig plans to star, while IMDb reports that Maya Rudolph and Rose Byrne will co-star. No word on what roles each actor will be playing.

The film is being directed by Paul Feig and produced by Judd Apatow, who together famously created the cult television show "Freaks and Geeks" before Apatow became a box-office sensation. Apatow's last directorial effort, Funny People, was a critical success but an underperformer at the box office, grossing only $51.8 million domestically against a $75 million budget. He has several projects currently lined up in a producer capacity, including a film about Aziz Ansari's Funny People character "Randy".

The comedy is slated to open on May 12th, 2011.
