    Charlie Kaufman To Adapt The First Book In The 'Chaos Walking' Book Series 'The Knife Of Never Letting Go'

    Lionsgate are making sure they aren't caught with their pants down when "The Hunger Games" series inevitably comes to an end. Even though the first film is still in theaters, they aren't wasting any time in making sure they have another big hit franchise to keep the blockbuster mon...

    Charlie Kaufman Will Now Bend Your Mind With His Debut Novel

    If you need your fix of the existential stylings of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “Synecdoche, New York” filmmaker Charlie Kaufman, you may still be waiting a little while for his movie-musical “Frank or Francis.” Luckily, there’s another proje...

    Samantha Morton & Amy Adams Line Up Untitled Spike Jonze Romance Starring Joaquin Phoenix & Carey Mulligan

    It has been three, far too long years since Spike Jonze's last feature film, the wonderful "Where The Wild Things Are" and while various videos and shorts he's done in the interim -- including "I'm Here" and "Scenes From The Suburbs" -- were nice holdovers, ...

    Charlie Kaufman Confirms That Next Directorial Effort 'Frank Or Francis' Is A Full-On Musical

    When a screenwriter is admired, it is often based on how well he or she can construct a story (Robert Towne, William Goldman) or write dialogue (Aaron Sorkin, David Mamet), but Charlie Kaufman is the rare screenwriter who is revered for the strength of his ideas. He certainly feels like the first w...

    Carey Mulligan Joins Coens' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' & Spike Jonze's New Film Starring Joaquin Phoenix

    It's hard to believe that just two years ago the world was waking up to Carey Mulligan. The actress seemed to come out of nowhere with her turn in Lone Scherfig's "An Education," and rather than try and go for big paydays in tentpole or franchise movies, Mulligan has wisely opted to work with filmmakers instead. Jim Sheridan ("Brothers"), Oliver Stone ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"), Mark Romanek ("Never Let Me Go"), Nicolas Winding Refn ("Drive") and Steve McQueen ("Shame") now grace her filmography, with Baz Luhrmann being added this fall as she shoots "The Great Gatsby." And Mulligan isn't stopping there, as Variety report, she's addin...

    Charlie Kaufman Says Zany, Outrageous 'Frank Or Francis' Is About "Online Film Criticism"

    But "In The Broadest Possible Sense Only"; We've Read It And Have Details On This Wonderfully Ambitious & Bizarre ScriptScreenwriter/director Charlie Kaufman is a busy man. After taking a detour to give a script polish on "Kung Fu Panda 2," the writer behind "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" and the director of "Synecdoche, New York," is back at it in full force. The filmmaker has two scripts in the can: one, an untitled political satire that his old co-hort Spike Jonze is going to direct starring Joaquin Phoenix, and another that Kaufman will once again get behind the camera for called "Frank or Francis." We already know that it will s...

    Today In Unexpected Pairings: Kevin James & Emily Watson Star In Indie 'Little Boy'

    Plus Will The Portly Comedian Appear In Charlie Kaufman's 'Frank & Francis'?We may be about to be stripped of our snark cred, but we don't hate Kevin James. He's a decent enough actor, has some comic timing, and is a firmly likable screen presence. We do, however, hate virtually every film he's made: a cynical string of fatty-fall-over gags tied to the loosest possible plot you could think of. But with "The Zookeeper" failing to meet box office expectations (taking half of the gross of James' last vehicle "Paul Blart: Mall Cop"), the chubby funnyman may be heading for a change of tack, with the news that he's teaming up with Oscar nominee Emi...
