(Lincoln) is one sneaky indie filmmaker.
Last week news broke (like a furtive fart) that the multi-talented actor-writer-director had already started filming his new movie, Anesthesia with in a small supporting role in New York.
Plot details were sparse. The only substantial story detail known was that the micro-budgeted indie drama revolves around a Columbia University philosophy professor.
Now, Deadline throws a bit of light on the ensemble drama.
And, behold, what we see is a mighty cast:
The latter will play said college professor who becomes the victim of a violent mugging. The incident is the cataclyst for bringing together all sorts of disparate people - who will be played by the talented bunch of actors listed above.
Stewart plays one of his students, Close his wife. The excellent co-stars as an investment banker who witnesses the crime.
