News came to light that Conor Oberst had auditioned for the main role in the movie Inside Llewyn Davis, and it turns out that wasn't the only time he was interested in film. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he briefly mentioned that he'd spent six months writing a screenplay starring the Monsters of Folk. If you're not familiar, that's the supergroup that Oberst had joined with Jim James and M. Ward.

He described the film as "an allegory about how the Internet is destroying humanity". Cheery. Unfortunately for everyone, though, he also said the project "fizzled" so we won't be seeing that film anytime soon.

He's currently in Nashville recording another solo album that's more country-tinged, and produced by Jonathan Wilson who has worked with Dawes and Father John Misty.
