Charlie Kaufman’s Frank or Francis is postponed or delayed


The highly-anticipated Charlie Kaufman musical “Frank or Francis” has been postponed.

The film, which “chronicles the back-and-forth between a movie director and an online blogger who berates him”, was said to be a Hollywood satire (a’la “The Player”) set to music.

Elizabeth Banks, who was attached to star in the film alongside Steve Carell, Jack Black, Nicolas Cage, Jacki Weaver and Kevin Kline, tells Moviefone – at the press day for her new film “People Like Us” – that the movie went kaput at the last minute.

“We didn’t get to shoot that movie. It was ready to go, and, as many movies do, it fell apart at the last minute.”

The Playlist contacted Kaufman’s reps for a response, they would only say it’s been “postponed”.
