Lonesome Jim: According to Variety, Actor/director Steve Buscemi will undertake his third feature stint behind the camera with Lonesome Jim, a dysfunctional family comedy-drama starring Liv Tyler and Casey Affleck.

The first screenplay penned by New York fiction writer James C. Strouse follows the return of 28-year-old Jim (Affleck) to his hometown in Indiana, where he is forced, after failing to make it on his own, to move back in with his parents and deal with crippling family obligations. Tyler plays a woman Jim meets in a local bar, whose young son begins treating him like a father.

Stay tuned for more on this project...
