Director Spike Jonze and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman will reunite once again for an untitled project based on the controversy surrounding the notorious Bilderberg Group, an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 140 guests, most of whom are people of influence in the fields of politics, banking, business, the military and media.
Charlie Kaufman is writing this satire, which revolves around those world leaders who meet to determine when and how global events will happen, such as future wars and rising oil prices. The untitled project was recently pitched to financiers, with Megan Ellison's Annapura Pictures now trying to acquire the rights.
It isn't known if the script is completed yet. Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman previously collaborated on Being John Malkovich in 1999 and Adaptation in 2002. Charlie Kaufman received Academy Award nominations for both of those original screenplays.
