Now Is The Winter Of Charles' Discontent
Borat director signs for new comedy

08 April 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

Borat, Bruno and Religulous director Larry Charles is very close to signing up for a new comedy, Winter's Discontent, which deals with the always-popular subject of geriatric sex. Er, wait, what?

Yes, Clark's keeping up his recent tradition of making films about things that people would rather not talk about with this one. The plot - it's not a documentary this time - centres on a sexually-frustrated widower who decides that the solution to his plight is to move into a retirement community, along with his best buddy, and then move in on the residents.

The script was written by one-time banker Paul Fruchbom (getting out before he too faced lynching, presumably) and is on the fast-track to go into production as soon as possible.
