Leaves of Grass Trailer

Although I just called this Edward Norton's Leaves of Grass, it's actually Tim Blake Nelson's Leaves of Grass, because Tim Blake Nelson wrote and directed it and even has a starring role in it. This stars Edward Norton in twin roles as two brothers, one an Ivy League philosophy professor, the other a small-time pot grower in Oklahoma. This is just an early promo trailer, since the film still hasn't sold yet, but it gives you a very good feel for the film and what to expect. I saw this up in Toronto (read my review) and really enjoyed it. Norton's accent is great, and as you can see from this trailer, it provides plenty of good humor. Enjoy!

Watch the promo trailer for Tim Blake Nelson's Leaves of Grass:

An Ivy League professor (played by Edward Norton) is lured back to his Oklahoma hometown, where his twin brother, a small-time pot grower, has concocted a simple scheme to take down a local drug lord.

Leaves of Grass is both written and directed by fellow actor Tim Blake Nelson, who directed Eye of God, Othello and The Grey Zone previously. This was produced independently by Tim Blake Nelson and Edward Norton and first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this year. It does not have a US distributor yet, as far as we know, but will probably pick up one and hit theaters sometime in 2010. Look good so far?

why does this look like "Ernest Goes To A Pot Farm" only with Edward Norton instead of Jim Varney?

My theory is that the hick stoner version of Edward Norton only exists in his mind.

The trailer makes this movie look different than i imagined when i first heard about it, but it looks fun. Also I will watch absolutely anything Edward Norton is in. By far my favorite actor working.

#6, i don't know why because it's NOTHING like that. #9, to say this is another version of moon is laughable neither of you two have any clue as to what you're talking about. i liked the trailer- the movie looks funny and ed norton is one of the best actors around today. i'll look forward to seeing this one.

I am a fan of Ed Norton but not have fan of pot head movies. I doubt I will see this one.
