IFC has released the trailer and artwork for its upcoming comedy ” Paint,” in which lead actor Owen Wilson goes full-on Bob Ross mode.

Wilson plays Carl Nagyl, Vermont’s top TV painter who has it all, from a fanbase to a van and even a perm, until a younger artist steals his thunder. Nagyl is reminiscent of Bob Ross, who hosted PBS’ instructional TV show “The Joy of Painting” from 1983 to 1994. He died in 1995, at the age of 52.

Wilson stars in the film after appearing in “Zoolander,” “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Bottle Rocket,” “Loki,” and “The French Dispatch.” The actor is also set to appear in the upcoming film “Haunted Mansion,” alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Jared Leto, and Winona Ryder.

Michaela Watkins (“Wanderlust,” “Thanks for Sharing”), Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids,” “The Goldbergs”), Ciara Renée (“The Flash,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Lusia Strus (“50 First Dates,” “Everyday Miracles”), Stephen Root (“Barry,” “Office Space”), and newcomer Lucy Freyer join the Oscar-nominated star. Denny Dillon (“Dream On,” “Saturday Night Fever”), Evander Duck Jr. (“Orange Is the New Black,” “Godfather of Harlem”), Will Blagrove (“Inside Amy Schumer,” “American Rust”), and Ryan Czerwonko (“The Endgame,” “Chicago Med”) appear in the film as well.

The film was directed and written by Brit McAdams. “Katt Williams: American Hustle,” “Triviatown,” “Tosh.0,” “Atom TV,” and “#IMomSoHard” are also in his resume. The film was produced by Peter Brant and Sam Maydew, with Aana Myers serving as an associate producer. The comedy was executive produced by Wilson, Joel David Moore, Amy Jarvela, and Richard J. Bosner.

“Paint” will be released on April 7. View the trailer below.
