Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are going to play twins

Having played husband and wife in Adventureland, former Saturday Night Live co-stars Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are reuniting to play brother and sister, as that is just the sort of sick, perverted, Hollyweird liberal sex dungeon we live in now. Variety reports that Hader and Wiig will star in The Skeleton Twins, a title with which there is only one thing wrong: It does concern twins—albeit twins with appropriate skin and musculature—who have drifted apart, but find themselves reunited after they each cheat death on the same day, inspiring them to embark on soul-searching missions to reconnect with past loves and eventually with each other. In other words, it's exactly like the Danny DeVito/Arnold Schwarzenegger movie Twins, albeit with Luke Wilson playing Wiig's sweet "frat boy" of a husband, Hader playing a gay man who seeks out his former lover, and the complete lack of the inherent hilarity of a large Austrian brontosaurus being twins with a short, bald Italian man. Hopefully it will still find other ways to be funny.
