Here’s the first clip from Billy Bob Thornton
‘s upcoming Jayne Mansfield’s Car
. Yep, an upcoming
, ’cause the movie (finally) opens next month. As you probably remember, we’re talking about Thornton’s first directing job since 2001’s Daddy and Them
, which definitely looks promising, and (let’s be honest) has an awesome cast on board. Head inside to take another look at Robert Duvall
and John Hurt
& let us know what you think!
As usual, we will first remind you that Billy Bob Thornton
directed the whole thing from a script he co-wrote with Tom Epperson
, which is set in 1969 Alabama, and tells the story of fathers and sons, wars and peace, and the turbulent time that changed America forever.
Described as a funny, poignant and searching look at three generations of fathers and sons in the South during the tumultuous ’60s, the movie follows:
…a young man in the 1940s who raises a family in Alabama after his wife leaves him for an Englishman and moves to England. When the wife dies, she leaves a request to be brought back to Alabama to be buried, and at thatpointthe man hasn’t seen her in nearly 30 years. The two families – her original family she abandoned and her English family – meet and make an attempt to adjust to each other, with unevenresults.
Beside Thornton, Duvall and Hurt, the rest of Jayne Mansfield’s Car
includes Kevin Bacon
, Shawnee Smith
, Ray Stevenson
, Robert Patrick
, Frances O’Connor
and Katherine LaNasa
, and the movie is set to hit limited theaters on September 13th, 2013.
