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)
