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.

If we consider "The Green Hornet" as a studio "one for them" gig for the helmer, it's been nearly four years since the last bonafide Michel Gondry feature effort, "Be Kind Rewind." Thankfully, though, it looks like the inspired Frenchman has a couple of projects up his sleeve having spent last fall shooting "The We & I," a kids-inspired drama now in post-production, with another one in "Mood Indigo" (formerly known as "The Foam of Days") in the works and set to feature the powerhouse French cast of Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Gad Elmaleh and Léa Seydoux.

French actress Léa Seydoux has been bringing her Gallic brand of beauty and skill to Hollywood films for a few years now. But while she was reportedly on one of the shortlists to play Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" she has yet to lead a U.S.-made film, and instead has been slowly increasing her confidence in English-speaking roles by working in smaller parts for well-respected directors like Ridley Scott, Quentin Tarantino and Woody Allen.

Even though he's currently hard at work on his community-based, lo-fi and sci-fi tinged "The We & The I" inspired by a process book based on "Be Kind Rewind," Gondry has been quietly casting up the movie he'll do after that. Over last summer, two of the biggest names in French cinema -- Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris -- came aboard, and now two more starry bits of talent, who have also been making waves internationally, are joining the cast.
