Variety reports that "New Girl" star Max Greenfield is in talks to join the dramedy "The Glass Castle".
Based upon author Jeannette Walls' memoir the story centers on a successful young woman (Academy Award winner Brie Larson) raised by severely dysfunctional parents who struggles to understand her childhood when her parents, unexpectedly, move to New York to be near her.
Greenfield will play Jeannette’s loyal, but distant husband. He had a privileged upbringing, and is now living in Westchester and working in finance. He tries to understand and help Jeannette cope with her parents’ unexpected arrival.
Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts also star as said parents.
Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) is directing from an adapted script he wrote with Andrew Lanham. Marti Noxon helped pen a draft as well
Gil Netter is producing the film.
Filming is set to begin in June in Montreal and it is set for release in 2017.
