This collaboration comes about via the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, which pairs promising talents with world-renowned veterans in seven artistic disciplines -- dance, film, literature, music, theatre, film, visual arts and architecture. Finalists are selected through a world-wide search; moreinfo is here

Gonzalez Inarritu recently wrapped production on "Birdman," starring Emma Stone and Michael Keaton. In December of last year it was reported by Variety the director was in talks to helm "The Jungle Book" for Warner Bros; that was subsequently denied in early January by Deadline.
