An indie/cult classic in the making, perhaps?
I'm so excited that Parker Posey is continuing to get roles and that John Waters (the mastermind behind the original Hairspray, along with Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom and others) is still hard at work creating bizarre indie films. And Johnny Knoxville is. . . also in this news item. The three are teaming up for Waters' next project, a Christmas film titled Fruitcake.
Mmm. . . Delicious fruitcake.
According to Hollywood Reporter, "The plot is officially under wraps but is said to center on the title character, a boy named after his favorite dessert. He runs away from home during the holidays after he and his parents are caught shoplifting meat, then meets up with a runaway girl raised by two gay men and searching for her birth mother."
Huh, for a plot that is "officially under wraps," that's a pretty solid plot description. Elsewhere I've seen the movie described as a "children's film," so I'll be extremely curious to see exactly how this Fruitcake comes out.
