Paul Dano lives For Ellen

Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Where the Wild Things Are and Gigantic) will be starring in Treeless Mountain writer-director So Yong Kim’s upcoming indie drama, For Ellen.

According to Variety, Dano stars as “a struggling indie rocker who, after almost getting in a car accident on a long-distance drive, arrives in a quiet Midwestern town to deal with his impending divorce, and the problems that arise involving his wife and young daughter.” Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) has a supporting role.

The project begins shooting in upstate New York in February. But first, Dano stars opposite Kevin Kline, John C. Reilly and Katie Holmes in The Extra Man, which premieres at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
