Kaufman, Jonze Re-Team For Satire

Annapurna Pictures is in negotiations to acquire an untitled satire that will serve as the third teaming of “Adaptation” and “Being John Malkovich” scribe Charlie Kaufman and director Spike Jonze reports Deadline.

The dark comedy posits the idea that world leaders gather every year to figure out all the major events that will take place from determining oil prices to wars that will be waged. Megan Ellison will produce.

Kaufman is also looking into directing his script “Frank Or Francis” which chronicles a volatile back and forth between a film director (Frank) and an online blogger (Francis) who loves to berate him. That film is currently set up at Sony Pictures.
