"Get Low" Upcoming Movie Release

Brought to us by the fine folks at Sony Pictures,  "Get Low"depicts the tale of a 1930's hermit (played by Robert Duvall) from Tennessee who throws his own funeral! Sounds like a movie with great potential and interesting period fashion. The cast of stars includes Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black. "Get Low" is due to be released in July 2010. Here's some stills from their facebook page:

Felix Bush, the character portrayed by Robert Duvall, was in fact Felix "Bush" Brazeale from Roane County, Tennessee. He threw his own funeral on June 26th, 1938 complete with the largest crowd ever seen in the area. Held at the two building Cave Creek Baptist Churches, neighboring John Cook reportedly took in over $300 by charging folks 25 cents each to park in his field. Cars were lined up for miles. Sales of hot dogs, soft drinks and floral arrangements were through the roof also.

Looks interesting! I have not heard anything about it, but the period clothes and set design looks cool. I think I have read something about the man it is based on before, or maybe I saw it on a TV show, I can't really remember.

Cool blog! I found it via clicking your comment on ACL.

Thanks! It looks promising. I'll try and post a little review after the movie hits my area (Detroit).
