Evan Rachel Wood is set to join Michael Douglas in The King of California, according to Production Weekly.

The King of California is a quirky father/daughter comedy about a teenage girl who must be the grown-up to her eccentric unstable father. Their roles change when he manages to convince her that Spanish gold is buried under the Wal-Mart next to the Simi Valley development where they live.

The film begins shooting in May and will mark the directorial debut of Michael Cahill, best known for his Faulkner Prize-winning novel "A Nixon Man."
