Luke Wilson "Is Here"



Luke Wilson has revealed to MTV that he will star in "Henry Poole Is Here", a new drama from Baltimore-born filmmaker Mark Pellington.

Taking a challenging role for his next acting stint, Luke Wilson has told MTV that he has signed on to star in a dramatic feature entitled "Henry Poole Is Here", which will see him become a man facing a crisis in the middle of his life.

"I play a guy who thinks he's dying," the actor revealed. "He leaves his life behind and goes back to the neighborhood where he grew up to buy a house [where he can] stay and die."

Shooting on the project reportedly is scheduled to start in July with recent Oscar nominee Adriana Barraza also starring and "Arlington Road" helmer Mark Pellington onboard to direct. While there is no hint about the screenwriter's identity, Wilson has been quoted to say that the movie will present a theme of "faith and redemption."

"It's just about him finding his faith," he added. "I am really looking forward to doing it."
