According to The Office's Mindy Kaling (Kelly, writer, and a co-executive producer) and Brent Forrester (producer) are working on a new screenplay. Seems likely that Kaling could be following in fellow NBC member Tina Fey's footsteps. Fey rose to fame and household name status with her hit movie Baby Mama. The movie will be called The Low Self Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie.

The plot is as follows:

"(the) story centers on a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. Just as she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, her life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever."

The movie will be produced by John Malkovich through his Mr. Mudd company. No one has been attached to star, although Kaling will have a supporting role. With the producers of the hit movie Juno at their backs,and Kaling's involvement this movie should definitely be one to keep an eye on!
