Tragi-comedy ‘Wilson’ slated for release next year

Some of the scenes for the upcoming movie, “Wilson” (2017), starring Woody Harrelson, were shot in the Twin Cities.

According to the Pioneer Press, producer Mary Jane Skalski says they are shooting over 50 different locations in Minnesota, including Mancini’s and the Farmer’s Market–both located in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The news is pretty exciting for locals, as some may recall film trucks ensconced about certain areas of West 7th Street in early May of last year.

Wilson, the movie

The movie is based on a comic book by the same title, by Daniel Clowes, which sees our main character egotistically interfering in the lives of other people, instead of coming to terms with his father’s death.

Now, the official trailer has been released for “Wilson”, depicting the story as being hilariously true to life, as one can imagine Woody Harrelson might be prone to rag on random people for no other reason, but the sheer pleasure he gets from getting under their skin.

Skalski made no promises that we would see the movie’s debut by Sundance, this November, but “Wilson” is slated for release in 2017. So, let’s keep our fingers crossed they make next year’s deadline!
