Ioncinema has a look at the movie poster for Academy Award-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman’s directorial debut Synecdoche, New York. Click on the poster to the right to enlarge.
Many of you will recognize Kaufman’s name from his unique screenwriting credits: Being John Malkovich, Human Nature, Adaptation., Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. The movie stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Michelle Williams, Samantha Morton and Tilda Swinton. Hoffman plays a theater director named Caden, who ambitiously attempts to put on a play by creating a life-size replica of New York inside a warehouse after finding out something is wrong with him on a trip to the dentist. More information on the film can be read in our earlier post.
This is one we’ll certainly be looking for. The film which started shooting in May and is scheduled for a 2008 release.
