Altman movie?

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Tom Waits might star in another Robert Altman movie, based on the popular radio show The Prairie Home Companion. Radio show host Garrison Keillor himself is to write sthe screenplay for the movie, which is set to begin shooting in January at the Fitzgerald Theater. If the financing falls into place this picture will reunite Lily Tomlin, Lyle Lovett and Tom Waits again after their appearance together in Altman's Short Cuts. Waits and Lyle would play Dusty and Lefty, the singing cowboys.
