Hope Davis joins Kaufman

ADAPTATION is my favourite film ever made that was not titled FIGHT CLUB, so Charlie Kaufman could pitch a movie about a piece of sweetcorn he was trying to pass through his intestine and I'd be there opening night. Fortunately that's not what he's doing, instead he has recruited the lovely Hope Davis (I can't help but associate her with unenthusiastic BJs) to play the role of Phillip Seymour Hoffman's therapist in Kaufman's upcoming directorial debut SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK. The film will follow a theatre director (Hoffman) in crisis over his work and the women in his life. The film also features Catherine Keener (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH), Michelle Williams (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) and Tilda Swinton (CONSTANTINE).

I've heard nothing but extreme praise or extreme criticism from people that have read the script (or claim to), but I'm hedging my bets with the former. ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND was a sheer masterpiece, and as I said, ADAPTATION is a movie that I could watch forever. Plus, Seymour Hoffman is always fantastic. Although to be honested, I much preferred his performance in ALONG CAME POLLY to the one he gave in that CAPOTE movie...
Extra Tidbit: Was that 'unenthusiastic BJs' quip a little obscure? Or are you guys on the ball with it?
