Brie Larson and producer Lynette Howell Taylor (“A Star is born”) have done a two-picture worldwide rights deal with Netflix. The streamer has acquired Larson’s directorial debut “Unicorn Store,” and will release “Lady Business” which will be her next film as both star and likely director.
Based on a Fast Company article by John Paul Titlow, “Lady Business” tells the true story of two young female entrepreneurs, Penelope Gazin and Kate Dwyer, who had to invent a third male company founder in order to be taken seriously in the business world.
Larson, Howell Taylor and Samantha Housman will produce. “Unicorn Store,” which premiered at Toronto last year, will be released on Netflix April 5th.
