Woody Harrelson Stars in the New Graphic Novel Adaptation, WILSON

Any of you fans of Daniel Clowes's graphic novel, WILSON? I haven't read it myself, but I do love the idea of Woody Harrelson starring in a film adaptation. From what I hear about the character, he sounds like another prickly loner like Haymitch Abernathy from The Hunger Games. But instead of advising young, fateful tributes played by Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, the actor finds himself having to navigate unexpected fatherhood and middle age in this new role. More below in the synopsis:

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.

The cast also includes the always awesome Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines. WILSON was adapted by Clowes himself and directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins).
