Plan B Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures announced Thursday that they will co-produce the new film from director Miranda July.
The still-untitled film tells the story of Old Dolio, the daughter of criminal parents who finds life suddenly thrown into disarray when her parents plan a heist along with an outsider.
The film is set to begin production in May.
This will be the third feature film from the director of “Me and You and Everyone You Know” and “The Future.” The former won the Camera D’Or at Cannes Film Festival and a Special Jury Prize at Sundance. In addition to directing, July wrote and starred in the film.
