Jeanne Tripplehorn, Sigourney Weaver and J.K. Simmons are joining actor Tim Allen in his directorial debut, the ex-con comedy Crazy on the Outside.
Allen will play a newly released prisoner who tries to persuade his single-mom parole officer (Tripplehorn) to date him. His struggle to rebuild his life is further complicated by a loving but manipulative older sister (Weaver) and her sarcastic, taunting husband (Simmons).
Ray Liotta, Kelsey Grammer and Julie Bowen also star in the film, which reunites Allen with his Galaxy Quest co-star Weaver.
Judd Pillot and John Peaslee wrote the screenplay.
