Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston and Rhys Ifans star in the flick, which centers on a prostitute named Izzy (Britain's Imogen Poots) who dreams of becoming an actress.Things get even more complicated when Izzy discovers the hapless director's wife (played by Kathryn Hahn) is also in the play.Bogdanovich, who made his name in 1971 with small-town classic "The Last Picture Show," said he was trying to a harken back to the comedies of Howard Hawks and Preston Sturgess – movies from an era before, he thinks, Hollywood lost its way.The director shelved it after Ritter's early death in 2003, but later thought Wilson might be the one to bring it to life.Wilson is an old hand at comedy, but said he found the demands of the movie, with its door-slamming, cross-talking and frenzied pace, refreshing.Bogdanovich said the idea for his latest work came from his 1979 film "Saint Jack".
