Billy Bob back behind the lens

Here's some damn good news, especially for those who have watched with horror as Billy Bob Thornton made the long, slow slide from Indie genius ("Sling Blade") through life as Mr. Jolie, to bit part craphood in dreck like "Armageddon" and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's "Faster": Thornton says that he's finished a new script with old writing partner Tom Epperson called "Jayne Mansfield's Car" and plans to direct, probably this spring.

Will he come back home for the production, as with "Daddy and Them"? Cross your fingers, both for a central Arkansas shoot and that he can recapture some of the "Sling Blade" magic. The boy needs a hit.
