Oh snap! One of my favorite actors, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be headlining this aberrant coming-of-age and picking-up-the-pieces fare along with Rainn Wilson and Natalie Portman, who is also producing.

Hesher is directed and co-written by Spencer Susser, the man behind the sweet zombie short I love Sarah Jane, and will be his first feature length film. Apparently, he's been working on this script for years, and while an Aussie, it looks like this is a straight up US production.

TJ Forney is 13-years-old. Two months ago his mother was killed in an accident, so he and his broken dad, Paul, move in with TJ's grandmother to pick up the pieces. Hesher is a loner. He hates the world and everyone in it. He has long greasy hair, a baby moustache, a Metallica t-shirt and homemade tattoos. He is malnourished and smokes a lot of cigarettes. He likes to get into fights, start fires and blow things up. He lives in his van...until he meets TJ. HESHER is the story of a family struggling to deal with a loss and the anarchist head banger who helps them do it.
