Dern 'paranoid' about Nebraska

Alexander Payne directed Nebraska

Nebraska star Bruce Dern says he was worried the film - directed by Alexander Payne - would never get made.

Bruce stars in the black-and-white film, about an alcoholic father who takes a road trip from Montana to Nebraska.

He told Variety that filmmaker Payne showed him the Bob Nelson script nine years ago.

"I was worried it would never get made and I'd never get an opportunity to play the role," he said.

"He went and made Sideways and The Descendants. I kept thinking that he's making them because he can't get (Nebraska) made and me, being as paranoid as I am, knew that it was because of me.

"I thought if he just gets rid of me than he could get the movie made and I could go on and do Rumpelstiltskin Part 3 or whatever it is I'm having to do," Variety quoted the Django Unchained star as saying.

"But he eventually got me (approved). Then the next battle was the black and white battle."
