The interesting cast includes Eddie Izzard ( Valkyrie) who will play a Hippie, Pilot, Chauffeur, Butler, Bartender, and Bait Shop Clerk and Jason Lee ( Alvin and the Chipmunks) as a character named Mortimer Flybait.
It also features Woody Harrelson ( The Messenger), Giovanni Ribisi ( Avatar), singer Alanis Morisette and musician Dave Matthews, who also wrote six songs for the film, reports Hollywood blog, The Wrap.
The fantasy tale, described as a cross between Beetlejuice and Alice in Wonderland, follows a science scholar solving a strange mystery about eccentric residents of a remote island. A modern-day fable, the script was written by David Michaels who will direct.
Thirlby will also play Natalie Portman's little sister in Ivan Reitman's comedy Friends With Benefits and co-stars with Emile Hirsch in the sci-fi film The Darkest Hour.
