Robert De Niro has been on auto-pilot for the last few years, recently appearing in Little Fockers, Machete, Limitless, Killer Elite and capping it all off with New Year’s Eve next month. In a bit of a career resurgence he actually has a few promising projects coming up, with David O. Russell‘s The Silver Linings Playbook, Rodrigo Cortes‘ Red Lights and Sean Penn‘s The Comedian. Another one that may fall into either category is Paul Weitz‘s Being Flynn.
The About a Boy and Little Fockers director’s next film was previously going under the same name as Nick Flynn‘s memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, but has since been changed to what you see today. The drama looks somewhat forced, but it may work better in the film, aside from the distracting, but wonderful Fleet Foxes track. Check it out below via Apple for the film also starring Paul Dano, Olivia Thirlby, Dale Dickey, Lili Taylor and Julianne Moore.
Adapted from Nick Flynn’s 2004 memoir Another Bulls-t Night in Suck City, the new dramatic feature from Academy Award-nominated writer/director Paul Weitz tells the story of a young writer, Nick (portrayed by Paul Dano), who takes a job at a homeless shelter – where one night he discovers his long-absent father Jonathan (two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) seeking a bed. Julianne Moore portrays the writer’s mother Jody; and Olivia Thirlby portrays Denise, a worker at the shelter.
Being Flynn hits theaters spring 2012.

What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
