Motherless Brooklyn, the upcoming movie that is being directed by Edward Norton, from a screenplay he wrote, was spotted filming in Brooklyn last week.
According to Variety, the movie is “set against the backdrop of 1950s New York and follows Lionel Essrog (played by Norton), a lonely private detective afflicted with Tourette’s Syndrome, as he ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (played by Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the powerful engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely-guarded secrets that hold the fate of the whole city in the balance.”
Along with Wills and Norton, Willem Dafoe, Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Cherry Jones also star.
Norton’s screenplay is based on the Jonathan Lethem novel Motherless Brooklyn which won the 1999 National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction.
