Jonas Åkerlund Making ‘Small Apartments’ With Matt Lucas

Thursday, January 27 by

Music video director Jonas Åkerlund, who’s already directed two feature films (Spun and The Horsemen) and is now working on a Britney Spears video, has his next project lined up: Small Apartments, starring dashing leading man Matt Lucas (Alice in Wonderland). Here’s a quick plot synopsis:

Franklin Franklin is a fully realized and sympathetic protagonist in the vein of Ignatius Reilly (A Confederacy of Dunces), a simple man who yearns for “a land of pastoral serenity” devoid of the irritants of contemporary urban life. An off-beat tale, Small Apartments is accented along the way by murder, strange fingernail collections, and the occasional blast from a treasured alphorn.

Better keep quiet about that Ignatius Reilly connection, everybody. That role is cursed! (Image and info via The Playlist)
