Well, the Oscars have come and gone, and my favorite movie of the year, Synecdoche, NY, didn't win anything. It wasn't very popular, either, but I guess it made enough money that they're already proposing it as a franchise for Charlie Kaufman. They just announced the following sequels:

Apocope, FL
Aporia, KS
Difrasismo Beach, CA
Elision, IL
Ploce, Croatia

I'm pretty excited about most of these, although I'm really not sure what to think about Aporia, KS. Ploce, Croatia just sounds like Kaufman being Kaufman.
