Director Alexander Payne of 'Side Ways' and 'The Descendants' fame has returned to the silver screen with 'Nebraska,' a black-and-white film starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte, and the trailer has debuted online.
After a seven year absence, director Alexander Payne returned last year with the exceptional 'The Descendants.' Thankfully, we won't be waiting nearly as long for his next film. 'Nebraska' is going to start shooting in October and Payne has added Bob Odenkirk and Stacy Keach to an already strong ensemble.
Ever since 1999's 'Election,' Alexander Payne's films have been like catnip to the Academy. 2002's 'About Schimdt' got two nominations, 2004's 'Sideways' got five nominations and last year's 'The Descendants' also got five. Payne himself has been nominated five times and has won twice. His next film, 'Nebraska' stars Will Forte and Bruce Dern. Mathematically, this means Forte could be an Oscar contender.
Director Alexander Payne - fresh off an Oscar win for Best Original Screenplay for 'The Descendants' - has invited Bruce Dern and Will Forte to take a little trip down to 'Nebraska' for his latest film.
