Michel Gondry...

Plot Outline: A man (Black) whose brain becomes magnetized unintentionally destroys every tape in his friend's video store. In order to satisfy the store's most loyal renter, an aging woman with signs of dementia, the two men set out to remake the lost films, which include Back to the Future, The Lion King, and Robocop.

I just downloaded a podcast the other day on Creative Screen Writing Dot Com that interviewed director Michel Gondry about his newest film "The Science Of Sleep" personal film of the year (haven't seen the Globe-nominated LITTLE CHILDREN yet though).

Anyway, I remember reading on his imdb profile earlier this year about his next project being a film with Jack Black called "Be Kind Rewind"

Mos Def, Mia Farrow, Danny Glover among others star in it as well. Even though Jack Black has really nosedived since THE SCHOOL OF ROCK. But I think if he has a good writer and director, he still can excel.

This along with another project Gondry may be doing with Daniel Clowes, writer of GHOST WORLD..who actually is working on something right now in a similar vein to BE KIND REWIND, UNTITITLED RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK PROJECT
Plot Outline: Three young men make a shot-by-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark in their hometown. ).

I gotta admit, after THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP and ETERNAL SUNSHINE..Michel Gondry is a film-making savant right now to me. I am very curious about his upcoming movies.
