'Jayne Mansfield's Car' Trailer: Billy Bob Thorton Returns To Writer/Director Chair In New Multi-Generational Dramedy

Posted: Updated:

"Jayne Mansfield's Car" is the first feature film Billy Bob Thornton has written and directed in 12 years, and its new trailer finds the Oscar winner donning a thick Southern accent as an Alabama native. "Car," set in the late 1960s, depicts a multi-generational family that clashes when their British counterparts -- one of whom is referred to as "that English bastard" -- call to inform them of the death of their matriarch.

Robert Duvall plays the head honcho of the Alabama family, while John Hurt leads the London clan. Thornton, Kevin Bacon and Robert Patrick play the three Southern siblings, with Tippi Hedren, Frances O'Connor and Robert Stevenson rounding out the cast. Co-written by frequent Thornton collaborator Tom Epperson, "Car" hits theaters Sept. 13. Will it net Thornton a second screenplay Oscar, following his win for 1996's "Sling Blade"? Watch the trailer and weigh in.
