This year has seen quite a few actors trying their hand behind the camera, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lake Bell and Jason Bateman releasing their feature-length directorials. Poised to join their ranks next year is William H. Macy with the Billy Crudup-starring “Rudderless,” his first feature film effort following an HBO TV movie way, way back in 1988. And now we can see the result as the first stills from the film have arrived online for your viewing pleasure.
First announced this past spring, the indie drama follows Crudup as a grieving father who forms a band after discovering music written by his late son. Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Laurence Fishburne, Felicity Huffman and Macy himself round out the cast. Here’s the full synopsis:
“Rudderless” is a musical drama about the power of a parent’s love. When a grieving father in a downward spiral stumbles across a box of his deceased son’s original music, he forms a band, hoping to find peace in the wake of his tragic loss.
The handful of images, which include both a goateed Crudup and a beanie-wearing Gomez, are down below.
