New Charlie Kaufman!

In case you haven’t heard, here’s the trailer for Synecdoche, New York – written and directed by Charlie Kaufman, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, and produced by Spike Jonze. Needless to say I have really really really high expectations for this one.

  • this looks like it will be an interesting; yet amazing movie. I’m super stoked especially that Mr. Hoffman is in this movie as well.. by any chance do you know when it is being released for viewing? I did not see a date or I am just completely blind.

  • 24 October 2008 (limited)

    Not sure about wide release.

  • mitch

    ah, how I love Kaufman’s work,
    this looks outstanding!

  • yea i CAN’T wait

  • Anytime Spike Jonez or Phillip Seymour Hoffman are involved in a project, I’m stoked. But the fact that both of them are involved in this one is super exciting.

  • Jeremie

    You can see painting of Alex Kanevsky at 1;15, i love this artist.

  • the thing i am almost most excited about and failed to mention above is that the music courtesy of Jon Brion. How can this not be a fantastic picture?
