What Are Charlie Kaufman’s Next Two Movies About?


We already knew that Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman (the masterminds behind Being John Malkovich and Adaptation) were set to reteam on their next project, and finally, we know what that movie will be about. According to Deadline, the untitled film is a satire about world leaders who gather in secret to plan wars and rig economies, and Jonze will direct now that financier Megan Ellison has come onboard. What's more, Deadline also revealed the plot of Kaufman's script Frank or Francis, a musical he hopes to direct about a filmmaker who becomes entangled with the entertainment blogger that constantly insults him. (Maybe it'll fill the Tilda-sized hole in your heart.) [Deadline]
