The adaptation for the graphic novel Wilson has added two new cast mates in Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines. The movie, also starring Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern, features Harrelson’s titular character Wilson trying to turn his life back around in his own quirky way. The original graphic novel was written by Daniel Clowes, who is adapting the project to screen. Clowes earned an Oscar nomination for adapting another of his graphic novels– 2001’s Ghost World— to the screen. Oscar-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants) is among the films’ producers
Wilson reunites with his estranged wife (Dern) and meets a teenage daughter, played by Isabelle Amara, and tries to make his life better, despite being a neurotic misanthrope, lonely and obsessed with his own past. His trials at getting back in their good graces are eccentric at best, twisted at worst. There’s no word on the exact roles Greer and Hines will be taking on beside the other three. The movie is directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins) with principal photography on the Fox Searchlight movie having already begun in Minnesota.
Judy Greer will next be starring in Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man and most recently played in Jurassic World and Entourage. She is also working on Geezer and The Hebrew Hammer vs. Hitler. Cheryl Hines has a few other projects going as well, including Christmas Eve and the TV movie Cuckoo.
Wilson has no set release date.
