Billy Bob is getting back to his indie roots. The Hollywood Reporter says Mr Thornton is attached to star in "Chrystal", which will mark the big-screen directorial debut of Oscar-winning short filmmaker Ray McKinnon. The film goes into production May 28 in Arkansas. McKinnon’s wife, Lisa Blount, who shared the Oscar with her husband, will star in the title role. McKinnon wrote, directed and starred in the short film The Accountant, with Blount co-starring and executive producing. The project, written by McKinnon, sees Blount star as the title character, a rural woman whose convict husband (Thornton) returns home from prison only to see that the vacancy in her life left by the death of her child years earlier becomes even more acute. Walton Goggins (The Shield) also stars.
