The film reunites Larson with Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton and tells the story of a young woman who is raised in a nomadic lifestyle by her alcoholic father and unbalanced mother. Watts is being eyed to play the mother opposite Woody Harrelson, who was recently cast cast as the father.
Watts can be seen in Allegiant, the latest installment of the Divergent series. She will reprise her role in the final installment, Ascendant. She also stars in Jean-Marc Vallée’s Demolition opposite Jake Gyllenhaal as well as the upcoming thriller, Shut In with Larson’s Room co-star Jacob Tremblay. She is also slated to appear in the Twin Peaks television reboot.
