Oscar-winning actor Tommy Lee Jones directs and stars in the new film The Homesman, based on the novel by Glendon Swarthout.  The film was recently screened at the Telluride Film Festival, and - during a Q&A held afterwards - it was noted that Steven Spielberg is thanked in the closing credits.  Here’s what Jones had to say on the matter:

"He asked to read the screenplay when I was writing it and was very encouraging about it. He wanted to see our camera tests when we took six, eight, maybe 10 cameras out to northeastern New Mexico to see which ones would observe the light best and be the most useful, and was very encouraging. I had my mind made up already, but he agreed with me, which I was very grateful for! Then I showed him a rough cut just before we locked the movie. He screened it at his house and I dropped by after he finished it and he was very encouraging then as well. He's a great pal. He knows a thing or two about movies and I appreciated his opinion. He was very supportive of me throughout the making of it."


Of course, Jones and Spielberg worked together previously on the 2012 film Lincoln.

The Homesman is due to be released in the U.S. on November 7, 2014.
