Brie Larson Takes UNICORN STORE For Directorial Debut

Oscar winner Brie Larson, who recently joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain Marvel, has set her sights on the director’s chair, lining up the indie comedy ‘Unicorn Store’ for her feature directorial debut.

Per THR, the “quirky” script comes from Samantha McIntyre (‘Married’) and tells the story of Kit, a woman named who, “after moving back in with her parents, receives a mysterious invitation to a store that will test her idea of what it really means to grow up.”

In addition to taking the director’s chair, Larson will star and produce, alongside David Bernad and Ruben Fleischer through their production banner, The District, Paris Kasidokostas-Latsis and Terry Dougas. Jean-Luc De Fanti and Anne Woodward will serve as executive producers.

‘Unicorn Store’ was first unveiled in 2012 with Miguel Arteta behind the camera and Rebel Wilson starring, but the project fell into development. Larson previously co-wrote and co-directed the short film, ‘The Arm,’ which won the jury prize at Sundance in 2012. You can check out ‘The Arm’ over on Vimeo.
