Update: Marlon Wayans' publicist has confirmed he will be appearing in the film. Best Hallowe'en present ever.

Pajiba's The Hollywood Cog has been a pretty solid source of info but this has got to be the strangest yet most potentially awesome news to come from their insider ever. Apparently, Marlon Wayans will star in Harmony Korine's next film "Twinkle Twinkle" which is about a former hitman who dresses up as a dollar bill. Yep, consider our tickets bought.

This is definitely the first we're hearing about the project and we're sure the logline is a vague indicator of what the film has in store. While Marlon Wayans potential involvement is interesting, we suppose it isn't that surprising. While he has made his fair share of dumb movies with his brothers, he's also branched into into more intriguing fare such as Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem For A Dream," the Coen brothers' "The Ladykillers" and Bill Condon's gestating Richard Pryor biopic, "Is It Something I Said." So we can seem him eyeing a crazy script by a dude named Harmony crossing his desk and going, "Sure, what the hell."

There's no word yet if this is related to the feature that Korine is crowdsourcing in association with the Rotterdam Film Festival or something else entirely, but either way, we're definitely intrigued. In the meantime, track down "Trash Humpers" at your local independent video store because Netflix still refuses to stock it. And in case you missed it, Korine recently completed the short "Act Da Fool" which you can view online now.
