Craig Johnson’s adaptation of Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel Wilson is well underway. With production having recently begun in Minnesota, Deadline has reported that Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines have now joined the cast.
Wilson tells the story of a lonely, smug, middle-aged divorced man living in Oakland, California who is obsessed with his past. After his father passes away, he attempts to connect with his drug-abusing ex-wife and the teenage daughter he never knew existed.
Greer can currently be seen in summer blockbuster Jurassic World and will soon be appearing in Marvel’s Ant-Man, hitting theaters next month. Hines last appeared in the romance comedy Think Like a Man Too and is slated to appear in the holiday-themed Christmas Eve being released later this year. Hines and Greer join an already excellent cast with Woody Harrelson filling the shoes of the title character and Laura Dern playing his estranged wife Pippi. »

The feature adaptation of Daniel Clowes' (Ghost World, Ice Haven, Mister Wonderful) acclaimed graphic novel, Wilson, has begun shooting in Minnesota under director Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins). Joining Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern is Judy Greer (last seen in Jurassic World) and Cheryl Hines (Larry David fans will need no introduction) in undisclosed roles. Harrelson will play the misanthropic outsider of the title, who makes one last-ditch effort to reconnect with his drug-addled ex-wife (Laura Dern) and a teenage daughter (Isabelle Amara) he's never met. Clowes also wrote the script for the film, which will be produced by Alexander Payne, Sam Raimi, and Josh Donen. »
Ok, it’s not an Alexander Payne project as it once was which is slightly less exciting, but we’re still looking forward to Fox Searchlight’s upcoming, “Wilson,” an adaptation of celebrated work by graphic novelist Dan Clowes. His dark, hilarious cynical touch begat many terrific graphic novels and so far, two solid film adaptations: “Ghost World” and “Art School Confidential,” both directed by Terry Zwigoff. Payne was supposed to direct the adaptation of Clowes’ “Wilson,” the script of which he wrote himself, but it appears he’s been caught up with other work. But in his stead is Craig Johnson, who won critical plaudits from Sundance 2014 with the indie “The Skeleton Twins.” “Wilson” already features Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern and joining the cast announced today are Judy Greer (“Arrested Development”) and Cheryl Hines (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”). Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his. »

Fox Searchlight Pictures has begun principal photography in Minnesota on Craig Johnson's "Wilson," starring Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines. Daniel Clowes ("Ghost World") adapts his graphic novel. Mary Jane Skalski and Jared Ian Goldman are producing. The film is shooting on location in the St. Paul area. "Dan Clowes' script embraces elements that are funny, touching, charming and sweet. This film has everything, including Craig who is one of the most precise and smart directors around. It will be a joy to bring Wilson to the big screen," said producers Skalski and Goldman. Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her. »

While it might sound like the crazy idea to make a film all about Tom Hanks’ volleyball pal in Cast Away (hey, someone will do it eventually), Wilson is actually the adaptation of a Daniel Clowes graphic novel that boasts a script by the writer himself. Director Craig Johnson has started shooting and added Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines to the film. The 2010 graphic novel revolves around the titular misanthrope: an opinionated loner who loves his dog but finds people harder to get along with. He tries though, often haranguing total strangers on a variety of subjects. But when his father dies, leaving him completely starved of human relationships, he sets out to find his junkie ex-wife, learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he never knew about, and tries for a last haphazard stab at family life. Harrelson will play Wilson, with Dern his ex-wife. How Greer and »
