French director Michel Gondry started out his movie-making career as a director of music videos for artists like Bjork and Beck, eventually breaking through with the visually striking, 2004 drama Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The movie earned Gondry and co-screenwriter Charlie Kaufman an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. We also have Gondry to thank for the current trend of "Sweded" trailers — low-budget recreations using handmade props and effects — thanks to his 2008 comedy Be Kind Rewind. However, after Gondry's 2010 comic book adaptation The Green Hornet, Gondry has stuck with more independent productions like last year's The We And the I and now to his home country for his next effort, Mood Indigo (L 'Ecume des Jours overseas). watch the trailer >> Posted 03.16.13 by Ryan
Every now and then there's a casting choice that seems predestined, a true chicken/egg situation. A role it's impossible to believe wasn't written with a particular actor in mind. Or a case where it seems cosmic forces must have been at play, birthing the perfect star for a role just waiting to make the jump from the page to the big screen.
We certainly had that reaction when we saw the first Alice in Wonderland poster. In the following video feature, our Mighty Movie Geek takes a look at Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, along with five other stars and the roles they were born to play. We call it the Deppage Factor. Posted 03.04.10 by reelz
Variety is reporting that Audrey Tautou, star of Amelie and The Da Vinci Code, will take the lead in an upcoming French biopic about fashion icon Coco Chanel.
The movie, which has yet to be titled, will focus mostly on Chanel's early years as an orphan and cabaret singer. Tautou, who was a lynchpin in getting the project off the ground, will be directed by Anne Fontaine.
