The Guardian reports: "Christopher Guest [...] is to direct a mock documentary about an indie film crew whose hopes of fame and glory are raised by the prospect of an Oscar nomination. Entitled For Your Consideration, the movie will also send up the Oscars and the rest of the awards season."
Thank you, Jesus. When I interviewed Guest back in spring 2003, I unprofessionally suggested that he send up the election/campaign process. But this is just as good. Everyone's back, too: Bob Balaban, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, Catherine O'Hara, Shearer, McKean, Levy. Ricky Gervais will also be in it. Release date set for January 2006.
