Alexander Payne Nebraska Release DateParamount is priming Alexander Payne’s Nebraska for an awards-season run with a limited rollout starting November 22. The drama starring Bruce Dern as a booze-ridden father on a road trip with his son (Will Forte) will be in Competition at Cannes next month. By mid-March, it still remained cloudy as to whether filmmaker’s follow-up to his best picture Oscar-nominated The Descendants would be finished in time to roll out on the Croisette. It was produced by Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa’s Bona Fide Prods.

The studio today also said that rookie helmer Dean Israelite’s Almanac, with a 2012 Black List script by Jason Pagan & Andrew Stark, will open wide February 21, 2014. The film, whose story is being kept under wraps, is produced by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes. Bay will produce along with Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are exec producing.
