Flying Lotus has been working for a while to make the crossover from producer to filmmaker. Over the summer, he premiered a short film dubbed Royal at the Sundance NEXT Festival and as he said at the time he's expanding on that film in the form of a feature length presentation entitled Kuso.
After Deadline revealed yesterday that Parliament/Funkadelic frontman George Clinton will have a role in the film, Flying Lotus sent out a string of tweets with more details about Kuso as well as the names of a few people he'd like to join the project, including The Office's Craig Robinson, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Kaitlin Olson, and Elijah Wood.
I also need a special fx genius to get involved. I'm filming a mutant bukkake esque scene. #kuso— FLYLO (@flyinglotus) October 1, 2016

According to the producer, he wants to get the film ready in time for the Sundance film festival, which will take place from January 19 through 29 next year.
