Todd Solondz’s ‘Wiener-Dog’ Draws Julie Delpy, Greta Gerwig, Brie Larson, Zosia Mamet

Independent stalwart Todd Solondz has started shooting “Wiener-Dog,” starring Julie Delpy, Greta Gerwig, Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and Tracy Letts.

The film is a follow-up to Solondz’s 1996 drama “Welcome to the Dollhouse,” in which the main character, Dawn Wiener — played by Heather Matarazzo — was teased with the nickname “Wiener Dog.” The castings of Gerwig, who will be playing the adult version of Dawn Weiner, and Delpy had been previously announced.

Megan Ellison is producing through her Annapurna Pictures alongside Christine Vachon of Killer Films. David Distenfeld is the executive overseeing the project for Annapurna Pictures, and David Hinojosa is overseeing for Killer Films.

The film tells several stories featuring people who find their life inspired or changed by one particular dachshund, who seems to be spreading comfort and joy.

Filming is taking place in New York City. Since “Welcome to the Dollhouse,” Solondz has directed “Life During Wartime,” “Happyness,” “Palindromes,” “Storytelling” and “Dark Horse.”
