Squirrel To The Nuts Loses Brie Larson, Gains Imogen Poots

Looks like Squirrel To The Nuts lost the talented Brie Larson, but luckily for director Peter Boddanovich, he gained another talented actress in Imogen Poots.

Poots, who we interviewed for Tribeca is a truly promising talent, and seems to be picking all the right projects this year. Poots will team up for Squirrel To The Nuts producers Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach for the screwball comedy.

In addition to Imogen Poots, Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Cybil Shepherd, and Richard Lewis are all joining the cast. Owen is said to lead the cast of mixed nuts. It’s not yet known who Poots will play in the film.

Squirrel To The Nuts official synopsis is listed as:

“A married Broadway director falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and works to help her advance her career.”

Earlier in the week we saw Aniston spotted in a short bob with a dog, as she was filming the movie in New York City. At the time she joined her co-stars Owen Wilson and Kathryn Hahn for a scene.

Owen Wilson plays a married Broadway director who finds himself involved with an actress, who was once a former prostitute. There’s no word on who the prostitute is but we’re speculating it might be Jennifer Aniston, given her recent choosing of roles in We’re The Millers and Horrible Bosses.

As for Imogen Poots this is just one of several projects she has lined up. The actress who has been in Greetings From Tim Buckley, and Fright Night, just wrapped on Need For Speed, where she stars opposite Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul. In addition, for now Poots is still also featured in Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups. Hopefully she doesn’t wind up on the cutting room floor, as Malick is known to do that for his films.

Filming for Squirrel To The Nuts is currently happening in New York City.
