Kevin Kline is set for double the trouble in Frank Or Francis.
The Oscar-winner is rumoured to play both a human character named Richard Waller and an animatronic computer super-brain named Richard's Head, reported Variety.
The film, consisting of three parallel stories and written by Being John Malkovich's Charlie Kaufman, can already count Steve Carell, Jack Black and Nicolas Cage in the cast.
Steve plays Frank Arder, a well-meaning but pretentious screenwriter-turned-filmmaker, while Frank (Jack) is an online blogger who lives in his parents' attic and has gained a following from his "biting critiques" of Hollywood and the film industry. Nicolas as a failing comedian who is desperate to get his career back on track.
Filming is set to begin in January.
