Christopher Guest Goes To Netflix With New Film ‘Mascots’

Christopher Guest Goes To Netflix With New Film 'Mascots'

He’s mocked the world of hair metal (“This Is Spinal Tap“), small town theater (“Waiting For Guffman“), dog shows (“Best In Show“), and the movie industry itself (“For Your Consideration“). Now Christopher Guest is the latest filmmaker to jump over to the world of streaming and he’s got a new movie coming in 2016.

Netflix has announced that in 2016, the mockumentarian will deliver “Mascots.” The film will take audiences into the 8th World Mascot Association Championships, where men and women compete to win the prestigious Gold Fluffy Award. So yes, sounds like chance for Guest to assemble a new batch of oddball characters, operating in their own unique fringe atmosphere, and seeing what they do with their outsized ambition.

No word yet on the cast, but it’s probably safe to say members of his regular troupe will be involved.
