Gus Van Sant helms the production, which is based on a story by Dave Eggers. It follows Damon as a salesman named Steve who seeks drilling rights in desolate farming towns.

Promised Land will see a limited release December 28, before expanding to a wider release in 2013. Take a look at the Promise Land poster, as well:
