Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack, Bradley Whitford Join Brie Larson’s ‘Unicorn Store’

Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack, and Bradley Whitford have joined Brie Larson in her directorial debut on the independent comedy “Unicorn Store.”

Hercules Film Fund is fully financing with Rhea Films producing. Larson, Lynette Howell Taylor, Paris Kasidokostas-Latsis, Terry Dougas, and the District’s David Bernad and Ruben Fleischer, who developed the script, are producing. Jean-Luc De Fanti, Anne Woodward, and writer Samantha McIntyre are executive producing.

Larson came on to the project in August. Based on an original screenplay by McIntyre, “Unicorn Store” centers on a woman who moves back in with her parents. She receives an invitation to a store that will test her ideas of what it really means to grow up.

The comedy just began principal photography in Los Angeles. Jackson and Larson recently worked together on “Kong: Skull Island,” which Warner Bros. will release on March 10.

Jackson just wrapped “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” for Lionsgate.

Cusack starred in Showtime’s “Shameless” alongside Emmy Rossum and will next be seen in Netflix’s upcoming series “A Series of Unfortunate Events” with Neil Patrick Harris.

Whitford most recently starred alongside Bryan Cranston in HBO’s “All The Way” and will next appear in “Get Out” with Megan Leavey, Kate Mara, and Tom Felton.

Larson is represented by WME and Authentic Talent and Literary Management. Jackson is represented by ICM Partners and Anonymous Content, Cusack by WME, and Whitford by ICM Partners and Greenlight Management. WME is representing the domestic rights to the film.
