Darren Criss will be in a theater near you this summer! The previously announced film Imogene, starring Criss and former SNL funnylady Kristen Wiig, will be released by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions on July 19, according to Deadline.com. The film will now be released under a new title, Girl Most Likely. Written by Michelle Morgan and directed Shari Springer, the dark comedy also stars Tony nominee and Oscar nominee Annette Bening.

Girl Most Likely follows a once successful playwright (Wiig) who fakes a suicide attempt to get her ex-boyfriend’s attention. When her plan doesn’t receive her desired response, she moves back to New Jersey with her off-kilter, gambling addict mom (Bening). When she returns home, she falls for a younger boy band wannabe (Criss).

The film also features Matt Dillon, Christopher Fitzgerald, Natasha Lyonne and Robert Pulcini. The movie premiered to strong reviews at 2012 at the Toronto Film Festival.


In semi-related news, I remain utterly shocked and saddened that Ryan Murphy's baby was not named Darren Jr. DJ for short. Middle name Tanner. DJ Tanner Murphy.
