John Lopez talks Frank or Francis on Vanity Fair's blog, specifically about how Charlie's script takes aim at Hollywood and tears the film industry a new one. Lopez wonders what kind of impact the film might have on the industry, if any, assuming that it gets made.
Now, casting announcements on the Internet are a dime a dozen, one degree above banner ads for online poker, but any motion to make Frank or Francis a reality is newsworthy if only because the script is a Trojan horse of knife-sharp meta-satire aimed straight at the heart of the industry Kaufman knows too well. It's an all-out attack on awards season.
[...] The text has swum around Hollywood's development kiddie pool as the current title holder for most "Unmakeable Film Out There." Not because it's a bizarre, phantasmagoric Rubik's cube of dark humor—it is—but because the movie aims to take down the entire raison d'Ãªtre of awards season and the explosion of film blogging that's accompanied it.

I doubt it'll have a noticeable impact on Hollywood. I hope it does, but I doubt it.
A small correction to Lopez's piece, though: Francis isn't a blogger. He's a blog commenter. (I kept calling him a blogger, too, when the script was first being spoken about.)
