Kaufman is directing again

While preparing a new collaboration with director Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) in a so far secret comedy/satire project about a gathering of the world's most powerful leaders, Charlie Kaufman is also setting up the pieces for his 2nd directorial work. The first was Synecdoche, New York in 2009, a utter commercial flop staring Philip Seymor Hoffman and Catherine Keener - maybe due to its limited theatrical release, for Roger Ebert elected it best film of the year. Frank or Francis, also written by himself, is a musical piece about a filmmaker and the blogger who constantly shreds his movies apart. Nicholas Cage (Adaptation), Jack Black and Steve Carrel are already in talks for some parts.
