Christopher Guest Delves Into Collectors

Mockumentary geniuses Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer and Michael McKean are teaming again for another comedy along those lines, this time exploring the world of retro collectors reports wowOwow.

The film will explore the “massive underground of collectors who would do the Borgia’s proud as they scheme and double-cross to possess the item they crave… people who ferret out such things as old comic books, Barbie dolls, vintage magazine ads, vinyl 45-rpm singles or Charles Manson song lyrics written on Kleenex.”

The trio, along with their usual list of collaborators such as John Michael Higgins, Fred Willard, Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Parker Posey and Jane Lynch, are all being considered. The groups have previously tackled the realms of rock music (“This is Spinal Tap”), regional theatre (“Waiting for Guffman”), dog shows (“Best in Show”) and folk bands (“A Mighty Wind”).
