Jean Luc-Godard's 'Goodbye To Language 3D' Currently Shooting, Will Have A Talking Dog Or Something

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist May 9, 2012 at 12:17PM

While Jean-Luc Godard's most recent effort, 2010's "Film Socialisme," wasn't met with the warmest of receptions, that hasn't put off the legendary French director. That came after a six-year gap, but Godard is reportedly already in production on his latest, titled "Goodbye To Language 3D," and according to the production company Wild Bunch he'll be shooting in 3D. Could this be the arthouse alternative to "Hugo"?

While Jean-Luc Godard's most recent effort, 2010's "Film Socialisme," wasn't met with the warmest of receptions, that hasn't put off the legendary French director. That came after a six-year gap, but Godard is reportedly already in production on his latest, titled "Goodbye To Language 3D," and according to the production company Wild Bunch he'll be shooting in 3D. Could this be the arthouse alternative to "Hugo"?

Godard has gone on the record expressing his interest in 3D in the past, saying that he likes "when new techniques are introduced" because "it doesn't have any rules yet." The cast is made up of entirely French actors (Heloise Godet, Zoe Bruneau, Kamel Abdelli, Richard Chevalier and Jessica Erickson), and while there's no official synopsis -- not that it would help -- this one seems to be taking the themes of "Film Socialisme" (which featured fractured, limited captions) to the next logical step.

"It’s about a man and his wife who no longer speak the same language. The dog they take on walks then intervenes and speaks. How I’ll do it, I don’t yet know. The rest is simple," Godard said back in 2010. Hmm, okay, maybe it won't be like "Hugo" after all. Love him or hate him, Godard continues to march to the beat of his own particular drum, but at the very least (we hope), the 3D requirements will mean the film won't have the washed out, blurry and kind of nauseating cellphone style footage of "Film Socialisme." Whether it's as obtuse as that film remains to be seen, but hey, at least there will be a cute dog, right? Look out Uggie! [via The Film Stage]
