for your consideration
it's been too long since the last christopher guest ensemble film/mockumentary. this one sounds like it will be awesome.
ricky gervais! i am totally in love with him. i don't find him attractive at all but i would still hit it. on principle alone.
both christopher guest and ricky gervais are "strangely gayless," as tc and i would say. that term doesn't exactly make a lot of sense, but it is derived from our term "strangely ageless" when describing people that could be 23 or could be 53 (kinda like on this website. click around for meth mouth photos). so really what i am saying is that they could be gay, they could be straight, or they could just be morrissey.
from dark horizons:
"Best in Show" & "A Mighty Wind" director Christopher Guest intends to do a sendup of awards season entitled "For Your Consideration," which Castle Rock Entertainment will produce and Warner Independent Pictures will release fall 2006 reports Variety.
The film won't be a mockumentary, rather centering on a movie-within-a-movie that will be largely improvised. Guest is directing and co-writing with Eugene Levy. The film revolves around three actors shooting a small indie film whose lives are turned upside down when buzz starts that their performances are awards-worthy. The movie-within-a-movie, titled "Home for Purim," takes place in the South in the mid-1940s.
Ricky Gervais will play the head of a studio's specialty division producing "Purim," while Guest will play a director who has shot 18 sitcom pilots, none of which have gone to series. Levy will play an agent. The three actors will be played by Catherine O'Hara, Parker Posey and Harry Shearer. Bob Balaban, Jennifer Coolidge, Michael McKean and Fred Willard also star.
The saga begins when one of the actresses is told of an Internet rumor that she's sure to be nominated for an award. A morning talkshow co-anchor talks about awards chances with her male lead. And the pic's third thesp is engulfed in similar rumors.
