California: "Pulp Fiction" star Samuel L. Jackson is to join the cast of Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson`s directorial debut "Unicorn Store," producer Rhea Films announced on Monday.
Jackson, nominated for an Academy Award and four Golden Globes over a 44-year acting career, will play opposite Joan Cusack ("Working Girl," "School of Rock") and Bradley Whitford, star of Amazon`s "Transparent."
Based on an original script by Samantha McIntyre, "Unicorn Store" centers on a woman who moves back in with her parents and receives an invitation to a store that will test her ideas of what it really means to grow up.
The comedy just began principal photography in Los Angeles.
Larson -- who won her best actress Oscar in February for Lenny Abrahamson`s "Room" -- recently worked with Jackson on "Kong: Skull Island," which Warner Bros. is due to release in March next year.
Cusack, who was Oscar-nominated for "Working Girl" (1988) and won an Emmy in 2015 for Showtime`s "Shameless,", will next be seen in Netflix`s upcoming series "A Series of Unfortunate Events" with Neil Patrick Harris.
Whitford -- who rose to fame White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman on NBC drama "The West Wing" -- most recently starred alongside Bryan Cranston in HBO`s "All The Way."
