Los Angeles, Jun 17 (PTI) 'Wonder Woman 1984' star Kristen Wiig will headline MGM's upcoming movie 'The Husbands', an adaptation of the upcoming novel.
According to Deadline, the studio has bagged the rights for Chandler Baker's book, which is set to be published in August.
Baker will adapt her novel for the screen, marking her feature screenwriting debut.
The story is about an overworked mother who, while house-hunting in a nice suburban neighbourhood, meets a group of high-powered women with enviably supportive husbands.

Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment will produce the project alongside Wiig. Baker will serve as an executive producer.
Wiig most recently featured in Warner Bros superhero blockbuster 'Wonder Woman 1984', co-starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Pedro Pascal.
