Billy Bob Thornton reportedly in talks to join George Clooney in New Orleans for 'Our Brand is Crisis'

   Billy Bob Thornton may soon be headed back to New Orleans. The Oscar-winning actor, who shot the crime comedy "The Baytown Outlaws" in the Slidell area in summer 2011, is in talks to join George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in the New Orleans cast of "Our Brand is Crisis," according to The Wrap.

David Gordon Green is directing the film, a political comedy that is scheduled to start shooting Sept. 29 and continue through early November. It's unclear what role Thornton ("Slingblade," "Fargo") would play.

The Warner Bros.-backed "Our Brand Is Crisis" is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name and focuses on the exporting of American political strategies -- specifically, those of former Clinton consultants James Carville and Stan Greenberg -- to South America. The film is being produced by Clooney and producing partner Grant Heslov, the same duo behind 2012's Oscar-winning "Argo."

Green is directing from a script by "Men Who Stare at Goats" screenwriter Peter Straughan.

"Our Brand is Crisis" is just one of a number of feature films preparing to shoot in what is shaping up to be a busy fall for the Louisiana film industry. Among others: The Dalton Trumbo biopic "Trumbo," starring Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren and which started shooting this week in New Orleans; the Warner-backed thriller "Geostorm," starring Gerard Butler and which will shoot in New Orleans in October; and the Hank Williams biopic "I Saw the Light," starring Tom Hiddleston and which will shoot in Shreveport.

I love Billy Bob. Hope he is going to be in the film. He is one of those actors I always like to watch.

Have to watch Monster's Ball again with him and Halle Berry.

Saw him up close while he was filming The Judge.  He's GORGEOUS.

BBT would make a good 'Carville' character.

I'm just assuming that's the role he'll be playing.

Fun fact: He's a longtime St. Louis Cardinals (major league baseball) fan. That gets him props in my book.

I'm just glad George will get screen time in this. They said BBT will be joining the cast alongside George and Sandra - so he's acting, not just producing. YAY!

And Way2Old - I think BBT would be great as James Carville. He's got the look, and he's certainly got the talent.

It's Me - They may start filming on Sept. 29th, but that doesn't mean the whole cast has to be there. They only need to be there when their scenes are filmed.
