You Too Can Touch Owen and Luke (and Andrew) Wilson

Which Wilson brother has the most fun being a Wilson brother? Zeppo, right?

If yer a fan of the Wilson brothers -- which is to say, of course, Groucho, Harpo and Chico -- they'll all be together on May 7 at 7:30 p.m. We can even tell you where: at the Inwood Theatre on Lovers Lane, for the long-awaited premiere of The Wendell Baker Story, which Luke Wilson wrote for he and big bro Andrew to direct.

The film, in which Luke plays a seller of fake IDs to migrant workers who winds up trying to save an old-folks' home run by Owen, has already had its "world premiere" -- at the South by Southwest Film Festival way back in March 2005, which was, like, 30 Luke Wilson releases ago. But the movie, which also stars Eva Mendes and Harry Dean Stanton, finally has a release date: May 18. More details to come; after the jump, the movie's trailer. --Robert Wilonsky
