David O. Russell May Direct Russ Meyer Biopic Because Boobs

Thursday, March 17 by

David O. Russell, you just got an Oscar nomination for The Fighter. What are you gonna direct next?”

Boobs: The Movie.”

Let’s expound on that fake title a little. Fox Searchlight is looking for a director to helm the Russ Meyer biopic they’re putting together. Meyer was the writer/director/producer/craft services/breast assembler for a number of famous b-movies in the 60s and 70s like Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! His movies were famous for having actresses with awesome racks. So Fox Searchlight is talking to Russell about filming a movie that’ll have a ton of boobs in it, which might be a pretty fun shoot. There’ll also possibly be a young Roger Ebert in the film – also fun, but in a different way.

Merritt Johnson (“In Treatment”) will write the script. (The Playlist)
