Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. This movie pretty much just blipped on my radar screen for the first time a couple weeks ago. I'd heard there was some Ed Norton movie shooting in Louisiana, but I didn't really start looking into it until recently.
This could be the best movie ever... Edward Norton plays twins, both geniuses... one's an academic, a college professor, the other is a pot-grower in Oklahoma... and the pot grower is actually the more brilliant one, creating a strain of marijuana that is the perfect smoke.
So that's Norton playing 2 roles and on top of that they have Melanie Lynskey... who is one of my biggest all time crushes (Kiwi girls really get to me), Susan Sarandon as the Norton twins mother, Kerri Russell as a noodler and, perhaps the single greatest thing ever... Richard Dreyfuss as a drug lord.
Those are just the tip of the iceberg snippets I found out when I interviewed Tim Blake Nelson about this project yesterday. Look for that interview to hit either this weekend or next week, but in the mean time here's a look at Edward Norton in the flick... click to make big!
