- Robert Duvall to star in director-star Billy Bob Thornton's 'Jayne Mansfield's Car'
Entertainment Weekly reports:
Good news, Robert Duvall fans! At Friday's Critics' Choice Movie Awards, Duvall told EW that he's committed to working on the Billy Bob Thornton indie film project Jayne Mansfield's Car. "It's another Southern tale," says Duvall. "It puts Tennessee Williams in the back seat -- it's that brilliant." According to Duvall, Thornton -- who co-wrote the script with Tom Epperson (the pair also wrote 1992¡Çs One False Move together) -- will not only direct but will star in the film.
Jayne Mansfield, of course, was a famous blond bombshell (and mother of actress Mariska Hargitay) who was killed at the age of 34 in an automobile accident in 1967. How the title of the film will tie into the script's story remains to be seen. "It's about a guy in between WWI and WWII who raises a family after his wife left him for an Englishman and moved to England," says Duvall. "When the wife dies, she asks to be brought back to Alabama to be buried, and at that point the character hasn't seen her in 20 or 30 years. The two families -- her original family she abandoned and her English family -- meet and then things get really interesting."
The movie, which is being independently financed, is due to start production this summer.
