Christopher Guest's Next Project Will Follow Vintage Collectors
by Ethan Anderton

By taking us into the worlds of dog shows, famous rock musicians, folk music reunion specials and theater productions, Christopher Guest has made some very unique and hilarious comedies. From directing Best in Show and A Mighty Wind to writing This is Spinal Tap, he's a master of the mockumentary. Now Guest is setting his sights on a new sect of culture in a new film, as Women on the Web (via Cinematical) reports his next project will focus on retro collectors. It's not clear whether the film will be in mockumentary style, but he's bringing his friends like John Michael Higgins, Parker Posey and Jane Lynch with him again.
Though Lynch's inclusion may be a little more tricky (she's quite busy with her Emmy winning turn on "Glee"), it sounds like many of the usual suspects will be around to take part. The retro collectors will be those who find themselves immersed in and obsessed with collecting items like old comic books, Barbie dolls, vintage magazine ads, vinyl 45-rpm singles and apparently Charles Manson song lyrics written on a tissue. Sounds like a great opportunity for Guest to craft some truly unique characters that are straight out of America. I'm always looking forward to whatever project Christopher Guest is cooking up next, so count me in. How about you guys?
