According to The Hollywood Reporter director Niki Caro (Whale Rider) will be helming Buttercup for Michael London's Groundswell Productions.

The film follows a middle-age man who has messed up in life but tries to get himself together when his wife passes away. The script was written by Alice O'Neil.

"Alice writes with such a light touch, which is what makes you want to take a journey with the characters," states producer Brian Koppelman.
