Christopher Guest is teaming up with Netflix for his next movie. According to Variety, Guest’s next film Mascots is headed to the streaming network sometime next year. Here’s the description of the film from today’s announcement, which sounds exactly like what you’d expect from a Christopher Guest film:
Welcome to all the drama, intrigue, and occasional excitement of the 8th World Mascot Association Championships, where a group of “unusual” men and women, with big heads and furry suits, compete to win the prestigious Gold Fluffy Award and be crowned Best Mascot in the World.
The cast has not yet been revealed, but judging from the description it seems safe to assume the film will take on the ensemble mockumentary format like Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and Guest’s other work.
