Fans of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was last seen in Inception, have been waiting well over a year to see Hesher. It was first screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2010, but has yet to be released. A new poster, with Gordon-Levitt looking as bad ass as ever, may spark hope in those anticipating the movie.
While the poster doesn’t appear to have a release date on it, which isn’t always a good sign, the movie’s Twitter feed and Facebook page claim it will be out May 13th, 2011.
Hesher, directed by Spencer Susser, tells the story of T.J. (Devin Brochu) and his father (a very bearded Rainn Wilson) after the loss of T.J.’s mother. Hesher (Gordon-Levitt) is a troubled loner who befriends T.J., leading him into all sorts of trouble. Natalie Portman (Black Swan) also stars as a young grocery store clerk.
