Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack, and Bradley Whitford have joined Brie Larson in her directorial debut, “Unicorn Store.”
Based on an original screenplay by writer Samantha 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.
Jackson and Larson recently worked together on “Kong: Skull Island,” which Warner Bros. will release on March 10th, 2017. Jackson just wrapped “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” for Lionsgate and can currently be seen in “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” for 20th Century Fox.

Jean-Luc De Fanti, Anne Woodward and writer Samantha McIntyre are executive producing.
