Hollywood greatly misses Gene Hackman. A lot of directors have tried to get him out of retirement. Directors like Tony Scott and Clint Eastwood but he still said no.

But the people behind Nebraska are optimistic that he will come back. Nebraska is from director Alexander Payne. Paramount has been a large debate with the project due to the budget but Payne is moving forward he will be shooting it in black and white. Paramount wants an A-list actor for the lead and they want Gene Hackman.

Because of the uncertainty of his return, they are also looking at Robert Duvall and Jack Nicholson. But with Hackman’s return, it will surely attract a bigger audience. And for Hackman, he might get an award nod for this film especially with Payne (The Descendants) behind the camera.
