Moon Indigo, an upcoming film by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) is based on the popular French book L’Ecume des Jours (Froth on the Daydream), which was published in 1947 and written by Boris Vian.
The story follows a woman who contracts a strange illness on the eve of her honeymoon. As a water lily begins growing in her lungs, her husband struggles financially to continue surrounding her with fresh flowers, which is the only way to treat the illness.
The book has been adapted for the screen twice before.
Earlier this month, Tiffany Nimos from Nowness caught up with director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind) in his native France where he gave a tour of his favorite video store in Paris which he described as a “labyrinth”.
In the interview with Nimos, Gondry was asked if he watches films as much as he used to before he began making them. Gondry replied:
I don’t see them the same way. Unfortunately, I can’t take myself out of the equation. Most of the time I’m watching a movie, I’m thinking, ‘I could never achieve this!’

It’s the movie that we never knew we were waiting for.
Dora has teamed up with Boots to make an action-thriller. College Humor often creates trailers for fictional movies that would be hilarious to actually make. When they posted the fake trailer for Dora the Explorer and The Destiny Medallion, they received so much positive feedback that there was no way they could pass up the chance to finish it.
They’ve decided to make it into a three-part Web series on the College Humor website. It stars the 15-year-old actress Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Dora and a Capuchin monkey as her faithful sidekick, Boots.
Director Alex Corey released this tweet yesterday about his upcoming film: A French-Iranian Man in the Valley.
The pub in the picture is none other than the Green Dragon Pub and Brewery in New Zealand. It was built for the Lord of the Rings Theme park there. Earlier reports said that Corey would shoot the film on location at the pub in New Zealand however, do to budget cuts, they may instead move production to the San Fernando Valley.
