Andy Kaufman Documentary Underway

April 14, 2022

New film alert! A documentary about the late Saturday Night Live and Taxi star, Andy Kaufman, is in the works. Alex Braverman will direct the project about acclaimed and mysterious cult comedian, which has just begun production. Morgan Neville, who directed Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, will produce through his Tremolo Productions banner.

“No matter how many times I watch Andy Kaufman’s work, I feel like I’m seeing a magic trick for the very first time. I’m excited for our project to honor that. This is the film I’ve wanted to make my entire life,” said Braverman.

The doc will feature Kaufman’s key films and early work as well as never-before-seen footage and audio recordings. Executive producers include Elara Pictures, the production company spearheaded by the Safdie brothers, Rick Rubin, Chuck Braverman, and Wavelength’s founder/CEO Jenifer Westphal.
