Amazon Studios just released a teaser trailer for Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, a promising new Gus Van Sant movie. With a fantastic cast and a based-on-a-true-story hook, hopefully this will be a triumph for the Good Will Hunting and Milk filmmaker.
Here’s the official description: After Portland slacker John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) nearly loses his life in a car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment – with encouragement from his girlfriend (Rooney Mara) and a charismatic sponsor (Jonah Hill) – Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop a national following and grant him a new lease on life. Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama about the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan’s autobiography and directed by two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant.
Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon also star.
