Billy Bob's new one 

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."

Levon Helm took home a Grammy again on Sunday — his third in four years — and is now back at home in Woodstock, N.Y., after a successful medical procedure, according to the Times Herald-Record.

This was Helm's third Grammy. The Turkey Scratch native's "Ramble at the Ryman" won for best Americana album. He won that category for 2010's "Electric Dirt" and won for best traditional folk album for 2007's "Dirt Farmer."
