More on Frank

Nothing new to report, just a direct cut/paste from Screendaily

Frank (post-production)

Dir Lenny Abrahamson
The anticipated latest film from Abrahamson — who drew acclaim for What Richard Did, Garage and Adam & Paul — Frank is an offbeat comedy following an aspiring musician who joins a band led by the enigmatic Frank. Michael Fassbender — wearing a large plastic head — stars, alongside Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal. “What appealed to me about it was the potential it had when I read it for a certain kind of very joyful, playful filmmaking, which I love and haven’t had a chance to express in the last projects I’ve done really, because they’ve been very different animals,” Abrahamson says. Written by Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan, the film was shot in Ireland and New Mexico. Frank was produced by Element Pictures and Runaway Fridge, with backing from Film4, the BFI and the Irish Film Board. Artificial Eye has UK rights while Element Pictures will release in Ireland.

I like Lenny A. I think 'Frank' will do well possibly become a cult classic.

Love the picture! And I think Dionne is right about the cult classic. The English/Irish humor is a class of it's own and there is a good vibe around this film.

Wow, got a 1K hit on this blog entry alone, most coming from the UK. Guess everyone is excited to see Frank! :)

I agree Hupsakeek, this is going to be a cult classic... maybe like Withnail and I?
