Hi Bryan Here….
That’s right Cusack and Knoxville will star in this what seems like uproarious comedy film titled ‘Carnaval’. Cusack will play a sports scout sent to Rio de Janeiro during the over-the-top bacchanalia of Carnaval to recruit the world’s best soccer player with the promise that if he signs the star, he will inherit the agency. Knoxville plays his best friend, a musician who tags along and has an affair with a woman who turns out to be the player’s girlfriend, derailing the signing mission.
Josh Stern will be directing and producing. Sounds like a sillier Jerry Maguire doesn’t it? I know Knoxville is gold in everything he is in and Cusack is just plain awesome. I wonder if Cusack will narrate the film to the camera like he does in so many of his films. I think this duo will have great chemistry and I would hope to see them in more films together.
