First New Poster for Alexander Payne's 'The Descendants' Unveiled
Coming this winter is a new Fox Searchlight comedy from beloved filmmaker Alexander Payne (Election, About Schmidt, Sideways). We haven't seen anything for this before today, but IMDb (via The Playlist) has unveiled the official poster for Alexander Payne's The Descendants, a dramedy starring George Clooney as a wealthy Hawaiian man named Matt King, who takes his daughters (Shailene Woodley and Amara Miller) on a road trip to find the man his wife has been having an affair with. This poster doesn't show too much yet, but I've got a feeling this will be something unique to keep an eye on once we actually get a trailer.
A land baron (Clooney) tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident.
The Descendants is both written and directed by Oscar winning American filmmaker Alexander Payne, director of Election, About Schmidt and Sideways previously, plus a screenwriter for Jurassic Park III and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. The screenplay was actually co-written by Payne and Nat Faxon & Jim Rash, from Kaui Hart Hemmings' novel of the same name. Fox Searchlight will be bringing bringing The Descendants to limited theaters starting December 16th. We also expect to see this at TIFF. Stay tuned!
