Jacki Weaver and Tony Shalhoub to headline The Wonder Yard

Silver Linings Playbook fame Jacki Weaver and The Marvelous Ms Maisel fame Tony Shalhoub will headline The Wonder Yard, the upcoming feature film. With Lauren Miller Rogen set to direct, the film's script is written by Beth Curry.

The Wonder Yard will be produced by Elevate Entertainment along with LYLAS Pictures. The film will revolve around Weaver's Dinah who loses her husband after being married for 50 years. To cope with the loss, Dinah decides to develop an eclectic wonderland in her front yard. While her adult children wonder what's wrong with her, the 73-year-old Dinah realises that it's never too late to chase a dream. 

Shalhoub plays Yusuf, a Middle-Eastern man, who gets invested in Dinah's journey and finds a second lease on life. The casting for the rest of the supporting roles is still underway. 

In a statement to Deadline, Lauren Miller Rogen said, “The message that we can find love at any point in life is powerful. Dinah and Yusuf may not be superheroes, but their story—which has its own sprinkle of Dollar Store magic—will entertain and will inspire."
