Ahead of the premiere of Avengers: Endgame, however, Larson is set to release her directorial debut, titled Unicorn Store. Larson's directorial debut, with a script by Samantha McIntyre, is a love letter to everyone's inner child, and a reminder that no dream is impossible. After being kicked out of art school, she has to move back home with her parents and work at a temp job.
Larson admits that all she's ever really wanted is a unicorn, and one of the lovely mythical beasts shows up on a big screen at the store. But she gets an unexpected shake up thrown her way from a very lively Samuel L. Jackson in the form of, yes, a unicorn.
"You have come to The Store, Kit". Kit quickly jumps into a game plan, telling her friend Virgil (Mamoudou Athie) that she's made up her mind and is "building a home worthy of a unicorn".
"Do you think this is some kind of joke?" "But I hope that for the people that I did make it for, it resonates with them as a way of saying, 'We need these voices that are unique and different'".
"I thought it was purely an allegory to me that I could just project my own things on to", she continued. "You're always like, 'Why don't you have a boyfriend?' Or, 'Why aren't you just more like Kevin?'"More news: Here's the mystery behind Javed Akhtar's credits in PM Narendra Modi biopic

The Salesman (played by Samuel L. Jackson in a bright pink suit) offers her the chance to have it sell her childhood fantasy: a unicorn.
Larson spoke with Variety at TIFF about what intrigued her about Unicorn Store.
Take a look at the whimsical trailer for Unicorn Store above. In 2016, Larson was brought on as both star and director.
The film is headed exclusively to Netflix on April 5 and stars Larson in the main role as Kit, a young woman more intent on chasing dreams than chasing paychecks. It received dismal reviews and was buried pretty quickly.
