Woody Harrelson takes on a comedic role in Wilson, of a character that would likely rub you the wrong way had you met them in the street.
After discovering he has a long lost daughter, Wilson (Harrelson) tracks down his ex-wife and attempts to re-connect with her and his newly discovered offspring.
Harrelson looks like he’s nailed the part of this character; a person that really has no shame and isn’t afraid to call it like it is.
Judging by the trailer, Wilson appears to be the type of film that throws taboo out the window, much like the character the film is named after, so while it may not appeal to everyone, it still definitely looks pretty funny.
Woody Harrelson has been in the acting game for 30 years now and will likely go down as one of the greats.
The two-time Oscar-nominated actor can do it all, from crime, to comedy, to action, drama and so on, he truely is a character-actor like no other, with an appeal that’s lasted this long for good reason.
Wilson is directed by Craig Johnson, whose last film The Skeleton Twins (2014) opened to favourable reviews, though isn’t one that will likely be remembered in the long run.
It also stars the fantastic Laura Dern, along with Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines and Isabella Amara.
The film is due out on 24 March 2017 in the USA.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.
