Squirrels to the Nuts Gets Larson, Wilson and Wilde


Peter Bogdonovich hasn’t directed a theatrical film since 2001’s The Cat’s Meow and hasn’t written one since 1990’s Texasville. That’s about to change, however, as Variety reports that Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach are teaming to produce the legendary filmmaker’s next, Squirrels to the Nuts. What’s more, the project has already signed Brie Larson, Owen Wilson and Olivia Wilde for leading roles.

Larson will play a New York prostitute who, after doing business with a Broadway director (Wilson), takes to the stage. Wilde, meanwhile, will play a therapist dealing with her own mother’s alcoholism.

Larson recently appeared in 21 Jump Street while Wilson could be seen last year in The Big Year, Midnight in Paris and Cars 2 with Wilde starring in Cowboys & Aliens, The Change-Up and In Time.

Jason Schwartzman is also said to be eyed for a role, but is unconfirmed at this time.
