Errol Morris Books A Ticket To 'Holland, Michigan'

Master documentarian Errol Morris is largely known for his fascinating profiles into the odder and darker corners of humanity that still somehow manage to resonate with nearly everyone who crosses his films. Everything from pet cemeteries ("Gates Of Heaven") to war veterans ("The Fog Of War") to physicists ("A Brief History Of Time") to a woman's adventures in kidnapping and cloning ("Tabloid"), Morris chases his fascinations wherever they take him. However, feature films are something he hasn't completely ignored. In 1991, he directed the not very well received "The Dark Wind," and while a long feature break followed, the pieces seemed to be coming together for "Freezing People Is Easy" last year with a star-studded cast -- Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kirsten Wiig and Christopher Walken -- but then all went quiet. But now it looks like Morris is getting on-board a different fictional feature.

Master documentarian Errol Morris is largely known for his fascinating profiles into the odder and darker corners of humanity that still somehow manage to resonate with nearly everyone who crosses his films. Everything from pet cemeteries ("Gates Of Heaven") to war veterans ("The Fog Of War") to physicists ("A Brief History Of Time") to a woman's adventures in kidnapping and cloning ("Tabloid"), Morris chases his fascinations wherever they take him. However, feature films are something he hasn't completely ignored. In 1991, he directed the not very well received "The Dark Wind," and while a long feature break followed, the pieces seemed to be coming together for "Freezing People Is Easy" last year with a star-studded cast -- Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kirsten Wiig and Christopher Walken -- but then all went quiet. But now it looks like Morris is getting on-board a different fictional feature.

Deadline reports that he'll direct "Holland, Michigan" joining "Paris, Texas" and "Happy, Texas" as city/state movie names. But really, it's a "a suburban thriller laced with black humor" -- which sounds perfect for Morris' sensibilities -- penned by some guy named Andrew Sodroski, who's new around Hollywood parts. Production is aiming to start next spring, but no word yet on who might board the film. Until then, Morris is putting the finishing touches on his next sure to be compelling doc, "The Unknown Known: The Words Of Donald Rumsfeld."

So, until we know more, here's Sufjan Stevens' track "Holland" from his Michigan album. We really hope he gets back on that concept cycle because that was a good one...
