Brie Larson’s devotees can digest news of another upcoming debut for the star. In addition to “Captain Marvel,” it was recently revealed that Larson will be making her feature film directorial debut with the upcoming indie comedy “Unicorn Store.” In addition to directing the film, she will also star in and produce the project, which is based on a script by Samantha McIntyre. The screenwriter made her excitement for Larson’s involvement known on Twitter. “EEEEEE! So this is really happening. (And seeing as @brielarson is half-unicorn, it couldn’t be more perfect.),” McIntyre wrote.
So what will “Unicorn Store” be about? The film’s sparse IMDb page provides few clues, but offers this brief synopsis: “A woman named moves back to her parent’s house, where she receives a mysterious invitation to open her own shop.” Right.
Larson is already hard at work preparing for another role, or at least if one Instagram post is any indication: she recently shared a photo of herself in bed reading not the script, but an actual “Captain Marvel” comic book. Last month at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced Larson as the company’s pick to star in their first female-driven film as Air Force Officer Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. The movie is currently aiming for an early 2019 release, so it will be a while until fans can catch Larson’s big-screen superhero take (although rumors have been swirling about a sooner appearance as Carol Danvers in “Avengers: Infinity War — Part I.”)
