Lea Seydoux Out, Charlotte Le Bon In For Michel Gondry's 'The Foam Of The Days'; Shooting Starts April 16th

When we caught up with French actress Léa Seydoux at the Berlin Film Festival, we asked about her about Michel Gondry's upcoming "The Foam Of The Days" (also recently called "Mood Indigo") which she had been linked to at the beginning of the year. "The thing is, that I don't really know yet [about that]...I have another project..." she teased, without saying much more. But indeed, it appears that scheduling has forced her out of the film.

Lea Seydoux Charlotte Le Bon

When we caught up with French actress Léa Seydoux at the Berlin Film Festival, we asked about her about Michel Gondry's upcoming "The Foam Of The Days" (also recently called "Mood Indigo") which she had been linked to at the beginning of the year. "The thing is, that I don't really know yet [about that]...I have another project..." she teased, without saying much more. But indeed, it appears that scheduling has forced her out of the film.

Earlier this week, Allocine announced that "The Foam Of The Days" would begin lensing on April 16th with fifteen weeks of production scheduled. But yesterday, came a couple interesting updates. Firstly, newcomer Charlotte Le Bon has replaced Lea Seydoux in the film. The actress only has a couple of film roles to her name, most notably that of Ophelia in the Euro franchise pic "Astérix et Obélix: On Her Majesty's Secret Service." There is more casting yet to come, as the site notes that negotiations are still underway with more actors to be announced soon.

For now, the film will find Le Bon acting alongside Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Gad Elmaleh and Omar Sy in the story that follows Colin, the wealthy inventor of olfactory-musical-instrument the "pianocktail." He marries Chloe, but unfortunately, she falls ill during their honeymoon thanks to a water lily that enters her lung, and the only way to treat the ailment is to surround her with flowers -- and the expense soon drains his funds. So yeah, right in Gondry's wheelhouse.

As for Seydoux, she is not lacking in work right now as she has array of projects on the way including the lesbian romantic drama "Blue Is A Hot Color," a new version of "Beauty & The Beast" co-starring Vincent Cassel and directed by Christophe Gans and another romance in "Grand Central" with Tahar Rahim. Meanwhile, her Berlin flick "Farewell, My Queen" will see a U.S. release courtesy of Cohen Media Group.
