Lenny Abrahamson is directing this oddball drama, based on the Frank Sidebottom (a.k.a. Chris Sievy) character, who starred in the short-lived British TV series Frank Sidebottom's Fantastic Shed Show. The character is also based on musicians Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band.
Production began earlier this week in New Mexico.
Frank comes to theaters in 2014 and stars Michael Fassbender, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy, Domhnall Gleeson, Lauren Poole, Hayley Derryberry, Mark Huberman, Travis Hammer. The film is directed by Lenny Abrahamson.
