Derek Cianfrance Pens “A Cotton Candy Autopsy”

“The Place Beyond the Pines” and “Blue Valentine” director Derek Cianfrance has revealed that he and his ‘Pines’ co-scribe Darius Marder are set to pen a new feature project that goes by the title of “A Cotton Candy Autopsy”.

Speaking on the Jeff Goldsmith podcast, Cianfrance says: “I don’t know how to describe it, except that it’ll be a crazy movie … Ben Mendelsohn will be in that one.”

The title is the same as that of a 1990s DC Comics series about a group of drunken circus clowns on a road trip bender.

Cianfrance is linked to numerous other projects, most recently an adaptation of the acclaimed novel “The Light Between Oceans.” However, he’s also had to drop one or two projects of late including the HBO series “Muscle” about an Oxford graduate who becomes swept up in bodybuilding.
