Gah. He's got me hook, line, and sinker, tapping into my inner Tom Robbins fandom. After the 2003 war film The Fog of War, Morris wanted to lighten up and is quoted as saying: "I'm a funny guy, and I'd like to make something funny now. I can't see myself making one political film after another. I'm glad I made these two movies, but I'd like to do something different."
He continues: "This is a new idea of how to blend drama with reality. Although actors will be cast and the script developed in the manner of fiction films, real-life photographs will be used as source material." Well, for anyone wanting more entertainment with their current day reminders, this should do the trick.
"Everything will shoot partly in Hawaii, where the wingless birds and volcano are." Seems ... logical!
