Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgard and British thesp Bel Powley have come on board to star in coming-of-age drama "The Diary of a Teenage Girl," which is currently shooting in San Francisco.
Caviar is the lead financier of the film with Cold Iron Pictures co-financing. Marielle Heller will direct from her own screenplay.
UTA will handle domestic sales of the film. K5 International will handle foreign sales.
The screenplay, based on Phoebe Gloeckner's graphic novel of the same name, centers on a brutally honest teenage artist living in San Francisco in the 1970s as she attempts to navigate her way through an affair with her mother's boyfriend.
Heller developed the project at the Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Labs.
Powley will play the title character in her American film debut. She has starred in the Royal Court Theatre's West End production of "Tusk Tusk" along with Tom Stoppard's "Arcadia" on Broadway and the recent production of "Jumpy" at the Royal Court Theatre.
Wiig was most recently seen in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." Skarsgard was most recently seen in "The East," "What Maisie Knew" and "Disconnect."
Caviar co-financed and co-produced Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac."
Powley is repped by Brantley Brown Schachter Entertainment. Wiig is repped at UTA. Skarsgard is repped by CAA and Principal Entertainment LA.
