Overview
Two time Academy Award-winning director Milos Forman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus) teams with Golden Globe winning screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (The People vs Larry Flynt) to bring a distinctive vision to MAN ON THE MOON, the story of the late Andy Kaufman.

Kaufman, the legendary 'Saturday Night Live' comedian, well known for his role as the insecure immigrant in the TV series 'Taxi', was considered one of the most innovative and eccentric performers of our time. His gimmicks and clever hoaxes created chaos for his audiences, colleagues and himself.

Andy Kaufman - madman or genius?
