Ok, this is quite interesting news.
Matt Lucas, who you probably remember from Alice in Wonderland, will team-up with Horsemen director Jonas Akerlund for the upcoming comedy Small Apartments.
The whole thing is based on Chris Millis‘ book with the same title and it’s already being described as the dark and delightfully absurd novel.
Check out more about this “… capricious comedy of errors that resonates with tremulous energy and memorable characters.
Franklin Franklin is a fully realized and sympathetic protagonist in the vein of Ignatius Reilly (A Confederacy of Dunces), a simple man who yearns for “a land of pastoral serenity” devoid of the irritants of contemporary urban life.
An off-beat tale, Small Apartments is accented along the way by murder, strange fingernail collections, and the occasional blast from a treasured alphorn.”
Let’s also add that Millis’ novel Small Apartments is the winner of the 23rd International 3-Day Novel-Writing Contest sponsored by Anvil Press of Vancouver.
And now, with Lucas on board, we guess that this project will be as successful.
Small Apartments is expected to begin filming this March.
