Larson reunites with 'Short Term 12' writer/director Destin Daniel Cretton for this adaptation of Jeannette Walls' memoir of the same name which "chronicles the life of a successful New York-based journalist all the way back to her poverty-filled childhood".

This has all the hallmarks of your typical schmaltzy cry-your-eyes-out-in-the-cinema affair but with Cretton on board as well as Larson, Harrelson and Watts, this looks like it could be the 'Captain Fantastic' of 2017.

Also starring Max Greenfield, Ian Armitage, and Sarah Snook, 'The Glass Castle' is set for release in the US on August 11th, with an Irish release date to be announced.
