Charlie Kaufman and Nicolas Cage, who collaborated on the Spike Jonze-directed Adaptation in 2002, are looking to team again on a new project, Frank or Francis, that Kaufman will write and direct.
Jack Black and Steve Carell are also attached to the project, which is currently looking for financing. It has been described as a Hollywood satire in which Frank, a film director, finds himself dealing with an online blogger, Francis, out to attack his work.
No word yet on who will take on which role.
WME reps Kaufman, Black and Carell, who is also repped by Media Four, while CAA reps Cage.
