‘Young Adult’ thesp boards ‘You Can’t Win’

Louisa Krause joins tale from the 1920s hobo underworld

Louisa Krause, who made a memorable appearance as a hotel employee opposite Charlize Theron in “Young Adult,” has joined the cast of Robinson Devor’s “You Can’t Win,” which stars Michael Pitt and Jeremy Allen White (“Shameless”).

An adaptation of adventurer Jack Black’s 1926 autobiographical novel of the same name, “You Can’t Win” chronicles Black’s experiences in the hobo underworld as he freight-hops around the Western U.S. and Canada.

Hannah Marks (“Necessary Roughness”) co-stars as a young prostitute who forms an unusual friendship with young Black (Pitt), while Krause will play Irish Annie, a street-smart prostitute who may be the closest thing he has to a love interest.

Parts & Labor principals Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy will produce with Robert Scarff and Zach Sebastian, as well as Pitt, who co-wrote the script with Devor, Barry Gifford and Charles Mudede. Pic is currently lensing in Seattle.

Best known for her roles in “Young Adult” and “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” Krause recently wrapped a supporting role in the indie “Bluebird,” which stars John Slattery. Thesp also toplines the indie “King Kelly,” which premiered last month at SXSW.

Krause is repped by the Gersh Agency and Kipperman Management.
