Owen Wilson and Olivia Wilde Cast in SQUIRRELS TO THE NUTS
Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach are producing a new quirky indie comedy that will star Owen Wilson, Olivia Wilde, and Brie Larson who most recently had a role in 21 Jump Street. The movie is called Squirrels to the Nuts, and it's being directed by Peter Bogdanovich. Jason Schwartzman is also in talks to join the project, but as of right now he's not officially attached.
The script for the film was written by Bogdanovich, and it follows a "hooker-turned-Broadway-thesp (Larson) and the recurring intersection of those two facets of her life. Wilson will play a Broadway director who pays for the young protag's services despite being married to the star of the play. He later gives Larson's character money to quit escorting and follow her dreams. Wilde will play a therapist whose own mother is in rehab for alcoholism."
There's a great and talented team behind the development of this movie, and I think it will end up being a solid comedy. What do you think about everyone involved with the film, and the story they plan on telling?
