Charlie Kaufman Saddles Up With Brick Tamland, Gulliver, & Johnny Blaze
According to Deadline, Kaufman has begun casting on his next project Frank Or Francis. Nicolas Cage and Jack Black have already signed on the dotted line and Steve Carrell is currently in negotiations to jump on board as well. Plot details are scarce, as is customary with most Kaufman projects, but the action focuses on a filmmaker (Frank) who begins feuding with an online film critic (Francis). No word yet one who's playing which role, and while Black seems the obvious choice for the blogger, I wouldn't be surprised to see Cage echo his brilliant and nerdy portrayal of Kaufman himself from Adaptation.
Either way, color more than ready to see what Kaufman has cooked up this time.
