Only thing better than an Edward Norton dark comedy is one with TWO Edward Nortons, including one of them with long hair and a crossbow. 'Cause everybody needs some Norton with a crossbow.

LEAVES OF GRASS, directed by Norton's HULK co-star Tim Blake Nelson, is just about to have its world premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival (or TIFF for intimates...) next month, so fittingly the fest has posted a couple of new production pics on their website. No crossbow on those, but one does have a beer-drinking Keri Russell. Even better!

The film stars Eddy as an Ivy league professor coaxed back to his hometown by a pot-dealing twin brother who faked his own death so he can hatch a plot to take down a local drug lord. With a crossbow. Distribution deals and release date will assumingly be announced after "TIFF". In the meantime, here are those pics.

Extra Tidbit: Norton wanted the part so badly he agreed to half what he usually makes. Ironic since he plays not one but two roles. So basically he got 1/4 of his usual fee for each role.

This really really needs to be good. REALLY needs to be. Ed Norton needs to remind us that he's the shit, something everybody and their mother agreed on fervently in the 90s, but it's been too long since he's blown our minds and I've been slowly losing hope for a while now. Obviously he hasn't gotten any worse at acting, judging by fantastic turns in The 25th Hour (which was still '02, 7 years ago now) and The Painted Veil, but his lackluster role selection has been bringing him down (though I
This really really needs to be good. REALLY needs to be. Ed Norton needs to remind us that he's the shit, something everybody and their mother agreed on fervently in the 90s, but it's been too long since he's blown our minds and I've been slowly losing hope for a while now. Obviously he hasn't gotten any worse at acting, judging by fantastic turns in The 25th Hour (which was still '02, 7 years ago now) and The Painted Veil, but his lackluster role selection has been bringing him down (though I missed The Illusionist, which I heard good things about). But if that extra tidbit is true, and I'm assuming it is, and Norton was that enthusiastic about the part (the double-role thing helps, maybe we'll see something along the lines of Adaptation?), then maybe he'll pull off something really good. Tim Blake Nelson spearheading the whole thing is also reassuring because that guy's the man. And the plot sounds fun and interesting. So, here's hoping.

Amen to that! And THE ILLUSIONIST is a little predictable but still a very solid film, in addition to co-starring uber-hot Jessica Biel and the awesome Giamatti. Can't ask for more!
