Before he mentors Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars anthology film, Woody Harrelson will play Wilson, a lonely middle-aged man with little tact and even less to really live for. That is, until he discovers that he has a daughter named Claire (“Spider-Man: Homecoming’s” Isabella Amara), who was given up for adoption in secret by his ex, played by Laura Dern.
A pair of trailers for the film (one "clean" version for general audiences, the other a foul-mouthed red-band version), which comes from "Skeleton Twins" director Craig Johnson, runs through the basic premise of the movie, following Harrelson and Dern's reunited couple as they stalk their daughter in secret.
Clowes has written the screenplay for the film based on characters from his graphic novel. Clowes’ graphic novel “Wilson” was first published by Drawn and Quarterly in 2010. This is Clowes’ third foray into film adaptation, as “Ghostworld” and “Art School Confidential” have already been adapted for the big screen.
Directed by Craig Johnson and starring Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, and Judy Greer, "Wilson" arrives in theaters on March 3.
