With a launch date set for December 28, Gus Van Sant's Promised Land is in the race for the 2013 Academy Awards. The film's early launch in New York and Los Angeles will make it eligible for the 85th Academy Awards, scheduled for February 24, 2013.

Scripted by Matt Damon (who also performs in it), the film will subsequently launch across the US in January 2013.

It's the fourth time Gus Van Sant directs Matt Damon, after Good Will Hunting, Finding Forrester and Gerry. The director accepted to take on the actor's script, although Damon had originally planned to direct it himself. A busy schedule conflicting with the time constraints of pre-production pushed the actor to send the script to his friend.

Promised Land is an anti-fracking movie about a salesman whose life takes a new turn when he moves to a small town. Matt Damon co-wrote the script with John Krasinski (The Office).
