Guest is developing the movie along with his This is Spinal Tap bandmates Harry Shearer and Michael McKean. It wasn't clear if the movie would be made in the mockumentary format that Christopher Guest has employed in such classics as Waiting for Guffman, Best In Show, A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration. The movie will focus on a bizarre group of collectors who are obsessed with particular items such as comic books, Barbie dolls, vinyl records and much more.
It was reported that Christopher Guest regulars John Michael Higgins (who was mistakenly identified as "Michael Patrick Higgins" in the article), Jane Lynch and Parker Posey were being considered for roles in the untitled project.
It wasn't clear if there is a script in place at this time, or when they are planning to shoot the movie. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on Christopher Guest's upcoming project as they're made available.
