Edward Norton Finally Gets to Premiere His Passion Project 'Motherless Brooklyn'

Edward Norton is joined by co-stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Willem Dafoe at the world premiere of their movie Motherless Brooklyn on Friday (August 30) in Telluride, Col.

The 50-year-old actor also wrote and directed the new movie and brought it to the 2019 Telluride Film Festival for its world premiere.

Edward first pitched the project 20 years ago and it was a long road to getting it made!

“I want to thank Warner Bros. We made this film independently and Warners took an enormous leap with us and have been just stupendous in supporting us , getting into festivals and getting it out. In particular my friend Toby Emmerich who has patiently waited for this film for 20 years,” he said at the premiere (via Deadline).

Also pictured inside: Gugu stepping out at the festival on Saturday as well.
