Described as a “quirky indie comedy,” Squirrels to the Nuts now has three new actors signed up.
Variety reports that Owen Wilson, Olivia Wilde, and Brie Larson are all attached to film now. Produced by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, Peter Bogdanovich will be directing with his own script. At one point Jason Schwartzman was also being looked at for the film, though he is not officially attached right now.
The story revolves around Larson’s character, a Broadway actor with a past life as a hooker. The film will focus on how those two seemingly very different worlds interact. Wilson will play a director on Broadway who gives Larson’s character money and tells her to star her life over and live her dreams. Wilde has the role of a therapist whose mother is in rehab for alcoholism, I’m not quite sure how it fits into the main story.
