Owen Wilson, Olivia Wilde and Brie Larson have been attached to star in the new comedy 'Squirrels to the Nuts' to be produced by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach.
Yes, it's true: Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom' is the first film from the director to not feature either the writing or acting skills of his longtime friend Owen Wilson. But don't worry -- this is not a permanent situation.
For the past few years we've been seeing Owen Wilson stay on the less aggressive side of the acting tracks, taking on more comedies and lighthearted dramas instead of leaning towards the action end of the pool. Now the actor is gearing up to be the lead in an upcoming action-thriller film for the first time since 'Behind Enemy Lines'.
'The Wedding Crashers' was one of 2005's biggest movies and made over $200 Million - which was a surprise for an R-rated comedy. Well timed and with a great cast, the film starred Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, and it's surprising that the two haven't worked together as co-leads again. So there should be some excitement in their re-teaming for 'The Internship,' which starts shooting this summer.
'Mad Men' director Matt Weiner will be taking a small screen break from the popular television show about drinking, smoking, cheating on your spouse and advertising, to helm his first major motion picture that will star Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson.
