At the end of last week it was revealed that Charlie Kaufman’s second directorial outing, Frank Or Francis, had added Kate Winslet and Catherine Keener to its ranks. Now the cast has grown once more, with THR reporting that Elizabeth Banks has signed up for a role, while Variety adds that Peewee Herman himself, aka Paul Reubens, will be in the movie.
The film is about an online war that develops between a successful filmmaker (Steve Carell) and a movie blogger (Jack Black). Nicolas Cage is also onboard as The Emcee, an actor known for commercial successes such as Fat Dad, while Kevin Kline stars as the director’s brother.
Banks is set to play a well-regarded actress whose career is largely made up of formulaic comedy bombs, who has an affair with Carell’s character. Reubens meanwhile will be an old school film critic.
It isn’t certain when the movie will start filming.
