Steve Carell, Nicolas Cage and Jack Black will team up for Charlie Kaufman's Frank or Francis

Looks like we have quite a potential trio on our hands as Steve Carell, Nicolas Cage and Jack Black are currently all attached to the upcoming Charlie Kaufman film FRANK OR FRANCIS. This is a film that has been brewing in the bowels of Tinseltown for some time and is described as, “a volatile back and forth between a film director (Frank) and an online blogger (Francis), who takes delight in berating his cinematic talent.” We don’t know yet who will be playing which character, but I think Carell would be a great Francis, just saying. Shooting is supposed to start early next year but no word on when the movie will be released.
Being a film writer, this movie concept is very intriguing to me. I think Kaufman is a smart writer and I can’t wait to see how he works this out. Plus Kaufman has a great way of making Nic Cage look good, maybe this will kick-start his career.
