Charlie Kaufman's Frank or Francis A No Go?

Bad news, Charlie Kaufman fans: While some cast members had been hopeful in recent months that Frank or Francis would move ahead, Elizabeth Banks (doing the press rounds for People Like Us) spilled news to the contrary.

“I honestly don’t know where that film is at,” she told AICN. "We were supposed to make it sooner, but it’s been pushed. I think they're waiting for everybody’s lives to come back together...I don’t really know anything about it.”

Speaking with Moviefone, she elaborated that things "fell apart" before the Hollywood satire/musical could move forward into production: "We didn’t get to shoot that movie. It was ready to go, and, as many movies do, it fell apart at the last minute.”

UPDATE: Over at The Playlist, the filmmaker's reps say that the project's not completely dead — it has just been "postponed."
