Rosemarie DeWitt, John Krasinski and Olivia Thirlby are in talks to star in the indie drama, Nobody Walks. The film is to be directed by Ry Russo-Young (You Won't Miss Me) from a script she co-wrote with Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture).
The story is told over the course of one week, and "follows a Los Angeles family who invite a young, charismatic artist into their home, only to find her disrupting their lives." Jonathan Schwartz (Like Crazy) is producing with his Super Crispy Films partner Andrea Sperling, as well as Alicia van Couvering. Filming is slated to start at the end of May in Los Angeles.
DeWitt is known for her role on Showtime's United States of Tara and recently played Ben Affleck's wife in John Wells' drama The Company Men. She just finished filming Disney's The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Krasinski (The Office) will be seen next in Luke Greenfield's romantic comedy Something Borrowed, and just finished Universal's Everybody Loves Whales with Drew Barrymore. Thirlby (Juno) stars opposite Emile Hirsch in The Darkest Hour. She just finished Dredd and is currently filming Paul Weitz's adaptation of Another Bullshit Night in Suck City for Focus Features.
I like Krasinski on The Office and enjoyed Thirlby in Juno. Dunham's Tiny Furniture received a lot of buzz and love from critics, so the script will likely be good. What are your thoughts on this casting news?
