While the films may not always work, the inventiveness and willingness to try new things, make us return again and again to the movies of Michel Gondry. And Gondry has been particularly hard to pin down recently, delivering the lo-fi "The We And The I," the animated Noam Chomsky documentary "Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?" and the wild fantasy "Mood Indigo." And for his next, it looks like Gondry again is striking into different territory.

Mood Indigo Behind The Scenes Michel Gondry

While the films may not always work, the inventiveness and willingness to try new things, make us return again and again to the movies of Michel Gondry. And Gondry is particularly hard to pin down of late, delivering the lo-fi "The We And The I," the animated Noam Chomsky documentary "Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?" and the wild fantasy "Mood Indigo." And for his next, it looks like Gondry again is striking into different territory.

Noting he has a few projects going, Gondry told Cine Chronicle at the end of March, "I wrote the script for the next film about two teenagers on the run. The filming could start this summer." He then told La Provence this week that casting was underway.

At any rate, it looks like Gondry is getting the wheels in motion on whatever he's doing next. Will it be another low budget lark, another unique dream spun from this imagination or something in between? Hopefully more details emerge soon, and we'd guess that if he is putting something together, it'll be the kind of thing shopped in the Cannes market next month. So keep your ear to the ground.
