Best In Show

That recurring dream you have with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara in frog costumes might actually be coming to life as Deadline reports that Christopher Guest has signed an agreement with Netflix to produce his next movie, Mascots. Sort of a Best In Show for the furry set, the film is reportedly about the “unusual“ men and women competing for the Gold Fluffy Award at the 8th World Mascot Association championships. Mascots will be filmed in Guest’s signature mockumentary style, and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will include Guest’s usual stable of actors, some of whom might actually be dressed like horses this time.

The Mascots deal comes as Netflix ramps up its slate of original movies, including deals with Cary Fukunaga (Beasts Of No Nation), Brad Pitt (War Machine), Kevin James (The True Memoirs Of An International Assassin), and Adam Sandler (The Ridiculous Six, a bunch of other crap).
