Watch: First Trailer for Paul Weitz's 'Being Flynn' with Robert De Niro
"You are me, I made you!" Focus Features has debuted the first riveting official trailer via Apple for Paul Weitz's Being Flynn, an adaptation of Nick Flynn's memoir "Another Bullshit Night in Suck City", starring Robert De Niro and Paul Dano as an odd, alienated father and son pair. The cast includes Julianne Moore and Olivia Thirlby and looks to be a rather intriguing drama about two writers, with lots of yelling and some quieter emotion, too. I wasn't expecting this, but it looks surprisingly good, give it a shot. I have a feeling writers will connect with this more, but I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks of this. Take a look!

Being Flynn tells the story of a young writer, Nick (Paul Dano), who takes a job at a homeless shelter in Boston, where one night he finds his long-absent troubled father Jonathan (Robert De Niro) seeking a bed.
Being Flynn is both written & directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Paul Weitz, brother of Chris Weitz, of American Pie, About a Boy, In Good Company, American Dreamz, Cirque du Freak, and last year's Little Fockers previously. This is adapted from Nick Flynn's 2004 memoir "Another Bullshit Night in Suck City". Focus Features just debuted the trailer and listed a Spring 2012 release, but no specific date. Thoughts?
