Owen Wilson

Olivia Wilde and Owen Wilson will team up for an indie comedy produced by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach.

It’s sort of a good ol’ boys group putting this thing together. Wes Anderson has been a long time contributor of Owen Wilson and Owen Wilson has starred in many of his Anderson. They wrote their breakout film Bottle Rockets together, Rushmore, And The Royal Tenenbaums — A personal favorite of mine.


But the collaboration doesn’t stop there. Noah Baumbach co-wrote The Life aquatic with Steve Zissou with Anderson which Owen Wilson also starred in. A few years later Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach co-wrote Fantastic Mr. Fox and Owen Wilson had a speaking part in that film as well.


The three make for a great dramedy team and I expect pure entertainment from this new collaborative effort titled, ‘Squirrel to the Nuts.’


Also joining the cast is Brie Larson, the beauty from Showtimes The united States of Tara. She is a talented actress and it’s good to see her venture out and get a role with some pure and talented filmmakers.


The film¬†follows a hooker turned Broadway actress (Larson) and the recurring intersection of those two facets of her life. Meanwhile, Wilson will play a Broadway director who pays the woman of the night for her sexual services, even though he’s married to the star of his play. The director ends up giving the hooking actress money to quit escorting and follow her dreams. And then somehow connected to this story is Wilde as a therapist whose own mother is in rehab for alcoholism.


I know it’s a lot to take in, but somehow, someway, this group of filmmakers are sure to get it right. Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach have a knack ¬†for these sort of projects.
