    Michel Gondry To Direct Video For New Bjork Single 'Crystalline'; 3D Movie Project Appears Dead

    "Biophilia," the upcoming album by Icelandic singer Bjork, is easily her most ambitious project to date. The nature and science-based album will be fleshed out with a suite of iPad apps for each song on the album and the singer plans a two year tour around the world with a stage show that includes a number of unique instruments including a gameleste and bass playing pendulum. While with each album, Bjork has continued to push the edges of her work way out there, she retains a strong core of regular collaborators while reaching out to new folks each time around. "Biophilia" is no different and to help kick things off, she has enlisted the help...

    Michel Gondry Says He'll Be Directing A French Language Film Starring Audrey Tautou

    'The We And The I' Still On Track To Shoot This SummerWith the numbers now all counted up, Michel Gondry's first foray into tentpole studio filmmaking with "The Green Hornet" earlier this year can be called a success. The film, budgeted at $120 million pulled in over $220 million worldwide, more than half of that coming from those increasingly important foreign territories. While we imagine Sony might have wanted a bigger number for their superhero film, for a movie with Seth Rogen in the lead and a virtually unknown (at least on this side of the ocean) Jay Chou in a supporting role they have to be satisfied that the roll of the dice paid off...

    Watch: Michel Gondry's Multi-Screen Vid For Living Sisters' & R.E.M's "Uberlin" With Aaron Johnson

    James Franco, Albert Maysles, Lance Bangs & More Tapped To Direct Videos For R.E.M.While "The Green Hornet" was a forgettable comic book movie marred by more than a few problems, director Michel Gondry did get to sneak in some of his distinctive style from time-to-time including an ambitious split screen sequence, one of the few highlights of the film. But overall, it was a Gondry film in name only. Well, for those seeking the wickedly lo-fi creativity of the director that put him on the map, look no further than the latest video for The Living Sisters (via Wired). Helmed by Gondry, the triple split screen video is a charming tale about the b...

    Cheer Up Michel Gondry Fans, 'The Green Hornet' May Be Seth Rogen's Fault

    Gondry Didn't Have Final Cut, Or Full Authority, But Says He "Accepted" This Early On“The Green Hornet” may have topped the box office this weekend, bringing in a respectable $34 million but its critical reception was mixed at best. Personally, this writer thought the film had some good laughs but really stumbled when going through the motions of yet another superhero origin story. More importantly, it was a far cry from director Michel Gondry’s best work (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, his music videos) and seemed like more of a compromise than a collaboration with star/co-writer/producer Seth Rogen. Well, according to an article ...
