John Krasinski lines up cast for The Hollars

John Krasinski (“The Office”) will direct “The Hollars”, says Deadline.

The actor turned screenwriter turned filmmaker will be joined by Anna Kendrick, Richard Jenkins, and Margo Martindale in the movie.

Krasinski also will star in the lead as John Hollar, an aspiring NYC artist who takes his girlfriend (Kendrick) back to his Middle America hometown on the eve of his mother’s (Martindale) brain surgery. There he’s forced to navigate the crazy life he left behind as his dysfunctional family, high school pals, his father (Jenkins), and his over-eager ex flood back into his life ahead of the operation.

This is Krasinski’s second time behind the camera; his first film was 2009’s “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men”.
