Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines have joined Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern in Fox Searchlight’s dramedy “Wilson,” which has started shooting in Minnesota.

Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”) is directing from a screenplay by Daniel Clowes, based on Clowes’ graphic novel of the same name. Mary Jane Skalski and Jared Ian Goldman are producing.

Harrelson stars as a lonely, neurotic middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he’s never met. The graphic novel was published in 2010.

Fox Searchlight’s David Greenbaum and Richard Gold are overseeing the project.

Clowes also wrote the adaptations for two of his other graphic novels-turned-movies — 2001’s “Ghost World” and 2006’s “Art School Confidential.”

Greer is in FX’s “Married,” “Jurassic World” and the upcoming “Ant-Man.” Hines starred in “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Suburgatory.”
