Kate Winslet and Catherine Keener Join Charlie Kaufman’s FRANK OR FRANCIS

     January 26, 2012

Charlie Kaufman’s new film Frank or Francis is shaping up to be one of the most incredibly strange/amazing moviegoing experiences of recent years, and the Adaptation. scribe has tapped two Academy Award nominees to join the cast. The plot concerns a director (Steve Carell) who becomes obsessed with a message board commenter (Jack Black) trashing his movies on a Hollywood website. Nicolas Cage stars as a washed-up actor and Kevin Kline plays dual roles as the director of the highest grossing film of all time and an animatronic head that helps create a machine that develops a completely inoffensive product with the broadest possible appeal. Oh, and it’s a musical.

Now Vulture reports that Kate Winslet and Catherine Keener are poised to join the impressive cast. Winslet and Keener are no stranger to Kaufman scripts, as they starred in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Being John Malkovich, respectively. Kaufman is directing his own script with Frank or Francis, and I absolutely cannot wait to see the finished product.
