Watch This: First Trailer for Edward Norton's Leaves of Grass
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?
