The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports that Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson will be making her directorial debut with indie comedy Unicorn Store, which she will also produce and star in.
Based on an original screenplay by Samantha McIntyre, Unicorn Store tells the story of a woman named Kit, who after moving back in with her parents, receives a mysterious invitation to a store that will test her ideas of what it really means to grow up.
The project was initially set to be directed by Miguel Arteta with Rebel Wilson attached to star but never panned out due to timing. Larson will be producing the film along with David Bernad and Ruben Fleischer under their banner The District. Also producing are Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis and Terry Dougas from Rhea Films, with Hercules Film Fund financing the film. Larson has previously co-directed/co-wrote a short film, The Arm, which won the jury prize at Sundance back in 2012.
There is currently no release date scheduled for Unicorn Store.
