'The We And The I' Still On Track To Shoot This SummerWith the numbers now all counted up, Michel Gondry's first foray into tentpole studio filmmaking with "The Green Hornet" earlier this year can be called a success. The film, budgeted at $120 million pulled in over $220 million worldwide, more than half of that coming from those increasingly important foreign territories. While we imagine Sony might have wanted a bigger number for their superhero film, for a movie with Seth Rogen in the lead and a virtually unknown (at least on this side of the ocean) Jay Chou in a supporting role they have to be satisfied that the roll of the dice paid off. But the director isn't ready to return to big money filmmaking just yet and has a number of lower key projects on his plate and has just added a seemingly new one with a big actress on board.
