He managed to make a film about a killer tire something completely surprising and unexpected, and while all director Quentin Dupieux would tell us about his next film "Wrong" is that it's "about a missing dog...But the movie’s really funny" we're pretty damn curious to see where he takes that idea.

Actor Also In Talks For 'Wrong,' Quentin Dupieux's Follow-Up To 'Rubber'Is there anything William Fichtner can't do?

Hearing the premise for "Rubber," your first thought is probably, "Who the hell came up with this?" Well, that'd be French filmmaker and musician Quentin Dupieux. He talked to us about the origins of the film, his approach to the score (which he co-composed with Justice's Gaspard Auge), and what's next.
