Billy Bob Thornton, whose new film "Jayne Mansfield's Car" with Robert Duvall, Kevin Bacon and John Hurt, is now on the festival circuit, has another promising project in the works: a road movie called "And Then We Drove."

Variety reports the film will be penned by Thornton and writing partner Tom Epperson, with filming in L.A., the American South and the desert southwest on a budget of under $20 million. It's a road movie about a man who picks up a female hitchhiker and their subsequent adventures. Producer Alexander Rodnyansky said that the film will be based at least in part on Thornton's relationship with Angelina Jolie.

Thornton is also currently seeking a distribution deal for his 2011 bio-documentary on Willie Nelson, "The King of Luck."
