Kate Winslet and Catherine Keener have joined the cast of Charlie Kaufman's next film, "Frank or Francis," New York magazine's Vulture blog reports.
Kaufman has already enlisted Steve Carell, Jack Black, Nicolas Cage and Kevin Kline to feature in the film. Carell will play a prolific actor/director irked enough by a nuisance web commenter (Black) that he seeks to confront and correct him. Cage will play a washed-up actor hosting the Academy Awards, while Kline will take on an unconventional dual role, playing both the inventor of a mechanical head designed to create the perfect movie script and the head itself.
Both Winslet and Keener have worked with Kaufman before; Winslet earned an Oscar nomination for her performance in 2004's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," while Keener got an Academy nod for her part in 1999's "Being John Malkovich."
Winslet recently starred in Roman Polanski's adaptation of Yasmina Reza's play "Carnage," while Keener, perhaps best known for playing Carell's love interest in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," is set to appear alongside Jane Fonda and Elizabeth Olsen in Bruce Beresford's "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding."
