Road movies are a time-tested (and borderline tired) genre. The travelers may change, but the destination largely stays the same from movie to movie. Casting Robert Duvall in a road-trip movie, however, is going to pique our interest, and pairing him with Jeremy Irvine . of Steven Spielberg.s War Horse -- only helps matters. The two actors will team for A Night in Old Mexico, the second film from Spanish director Emilio Aragon, who made his feature-length directorial debut with 2010.s Paper Birds. Variety says that the plot of Old Mexico, working off of a Bill Wittliff (Legends of the Fall) screenplay, follows the relationship that develops between a man (Duvall) and his grandson (Irvine). But the trade promises a combination of action, tragedy and romance, so hopefully the scope of the film is larger than what we might normally expect from a road movie. Which is totally possible.
