Written and directed by Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly, the new film tells the true story of the largest coupon counterfeit scam in US history.
The plot centres on a suburban housewife who, fed up with being dismissed and overlooked by her husband and society, decides to start up an illegal coupon club.
Her scheme ends up "scamming millions of dollars from big food companies while delivering deals to millions of fellow coupon clippers" (via Deadline).
"We love everything about this comedy, especially reuniting with our friend Kristen Bell, who is paired perfectly with Kirby Howell-Baptiste – we know they've got great chemistry, and Kirby has shown she is a master of this kind of comedy in Why Women Kill," said Adam Fogelson, chairman of the STXfilms Motion Picture Group, which is distributing the film.
"Audiences love this kind of entertainment – it's a subversive suburban comedy for mums that dads will enjoy too. We're thrilled to be working with Aron and Gita as we tell this fun story."
Executive producer Stuart Ford added: "Aron and Gita have pulled together a phenomenal cast and Queenpins is shaping up to be exactly the kind of broad, multi-generational, multi-cultural comedy caper that STX have enjoyed great success with in the past. Adam and his team are a perfect home for the film and we're excited to get going with them."
Bell and Howell-Baptiste starred in the hit comedy series The Good Place together as Eleanor Shellstrop and Simone Garnett, respectively. They also worked together on the Bell-led detective series Veronica Mars.
