We can only hope that the latest Luke Wilson movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
8. The Goldfinch (2019)
Luke Wilson will next appear in the American drama film ‘The Goldfinch’. Directed by John Crowley, this film is based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Donna Tartt. The star-studded cast includes Luke Wilson, Ansel Elgort, Oakes Fegley, Aneurin Barnard, Finn Wolfhard, Sarah Paulson, Nicole Kidman, and others. The plot follows Theodore (played by Ansel Elgort) whose mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art when he was thirteen years old. The incident has a tremendous impact on the young boy’s life. He suffers immense pain, anxiety, and bouts of guilt following this tragedy. But throughout his struggle with this sudden change in the course of his life, he holds on to a tangible piece of hope: the painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch – a Goldfinch.
The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 8, 2019. Donna Tartt’s novel was the recipient of Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2014, so it goes without saying that the film had really big shoes to fill. Naturally, the cast and crew were under extreme pressure to meet the expectations of the audience. Initially, it was scheduled for an October release, but according to official reports, the film would hit the theaters on 13th September 2019.
7. Zombieland: Double Tap (2019)

The additional cast includes Luke Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Zoey Deutch, Thomas Middleditch, Avan Jogia, and Dan Aykroyd. According to the official press release, the story continues after the first film, as Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock move to the American heartland.

The movie is geared up to be released on October 18, 2019, in the United States, a date that marks the tenth anniversary of the very successful original film.
