So Much for Your Billy Bob/Angelina Relationship Parable

Ahem! Billy Bob Thornton wants to clear something up: "I would never make a movie about my best friend, either, or any other ex of mine, or something. That's not my bag. I don't mind exposing myself, but I'm certainly not gonna make a movie about someone else. [...] If she came to me, or any of my friends came to me, and said, 'I would like for you to write a film about these experiences I’ve had,' then I would consider that. But no — we don’t even know how that happened." Alas. [Vulture]

This should be interesting: Variety's Gregg Goldstein reports from Berlinale that Billy Bob Thornton is working on a script for an "'ethereal' road movie" entitled And Then We Drove. Based partly on experiences from his time with ex Angelina Jolie, Thornton says "[it's about] a guy who's on a road trip and picks up this girl along the way, and what happens to them. It's about the question of life: 'What is this? Where do I fit in?'" Or, maybe: Honey, Have You Seen My Vial of Blood? Thornton, who premiered his latest directorial effort Jayne Mansfield's Car in Berlin, will also direct. [Variety]
