Arkin, Aniston Teaming On “Buttercup”

Oscar winner Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and Jennifer Aniston are set to star in the dark indie dramedy “Buttercup” reports The Wrap.

Arkin will play a grossly irresponsible father who, in the wake of his wife’s death, decides to get his life back on track with the help of his slightly neurotic daughter (Aniston).

Niki Caro (“Whale Rider”) directs from a script by Alice O’Neil. Michael London, Brian Koppelman and David Levien are producing and shooting begins next Spring.
