Ellen Burstyn took a break from discussing politics on the red carpet for Poliwood to tell me about Main Street. There haven't ’t been many details on the production, minus one image of Orlando Bloom in costume from Screening Log, but Ellen confirmed she’s wrapped shooting the film alongside Bloom, Colin Firth, and Patricia Clarkson. While Burstyn didn’t work directly with Amber Tamblyn she did confirm that Tamblyn is part of the project.

Main Street is based on the Horton Foote’s final screenplay about the town of Five Points and the residents who are disrupted from their daily routines when an outsider introduces some dangerous changes to their lives. Foote nabbed an Academy Award back in 1963 for Best Writing for adapting Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. He’s also responsible for bringing John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men and William Faulkner’s short story “Tomorrow” to the big screen.
