Charlie Kaufman’s Frank or Francis postponed

We were greatly looking forward to Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman‘s directorial follow-up to Synecdoche, New Yorkthe insane-sounding musical Frank or Francisstarring Steve Carell as an arrogant filmmaker and Jack Black as the blogger that torments him.

Co-star Elizabeth Banks dropped a bombshell this week when she told Movieline the project was no more, stating “it fell apart at the last minute.”

Kaufman’s reps have since reached out to Indiewire to say the production has merely been postponed. The reason is perhaps due to the auteur’s new endeavours: a HBO series for Catherine Keener, and an adaptation of YA novel Chaos Walking.

Those of us looking forward to seeing Nicolas Cage as a fat-suit wearing comedian and Kevin Kline as a disembodied robot head wait with baited breath.
