Harmony Korine's MISTER LONELY

IMDB's PLOT OUTLINE "In Paris, a young American (DIEGO LUNA) who works as a Michael Jackson lookalike meets Marilyn Monroe (SAMANTHA MORTON), who invites him to her commune in Scotland, where she lives with Charlie Chaplin (DENIS LAVANT) and her daughter, Shirley Temple."

If you don't already know who I'm talking about, Harmony Korine is the dude responsible for the writing of sleez-classic Kids, Ken Park, and his own debut Gummo, along with Dogme alumni Julien Donkey-Boy. Coming from a middle-class Jewish family, Harmony has been quite noticed in the 'underground' film scene. Not only has he befriended German film giant Werner Herzog and casted him in his last two films (including Lonely), DAVID BLAINE is the dude's best friend and will be in this film! I have been personally waiting for this film since its pre-production stage when the basic plot was a kid with progeria stuck in an enormous bottle in the valleys of Iceland. With a $9.5 million budget I don't see how Harmony can mess this one up...
