Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn Join Todd Solondz's 'Wiener Dog'
Julie Delpy and Greta Gerwig are already on board the ensemble movie, which begins shooting in New York this week.
Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and Tracy Letts have joined Julie Delpy and Greta Gerwig in Wiener Dog, Todd Solondz’s ensemble indie being produced by Annapurna.
Production began this week in New York on the movie, which tells several stories that are tied together by a dachshund and the people whose life is changed by the encounter.
As THR previously reported, Gerwig is playing a character first introduced in Solondz’s 1995 cult hit, Welcome to the Dollhouse, which told of a girl named Dawn Wiener who was mercilessly teased. Gerwig is playing the adult Wiener in one of the storylines.
Megan Ellison is producing through her Annapurna Pictures alongside Christine Vachon of Killer Films.
David Distenfeld is the exec overseeing the project for Annapurna Pictures while exec David Hinojosa shepherds for Killer Films.
