Consider me always up for a crazy animated movie


I know Michel Gondry is getting a little overexposed around here, but this, like most of his projects, is too weird and cool-sounding to pass up (plus, anyone who gives the world Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Dave Chappelle's Block Party deserves plenty of coverage, in my opinion):

Gondry is developing an animated feature with his teenage son, Paul, from a script by comic book creator Daniel Clowes (author of Ghost World). The feature, apparently told with a Ren & Stimpy-meets-Scarface feel, involves a dystopian future in which hair is the source of energy and an evil dictator forces people to create art. Huh. Paul's previous experience includes directing a similarly insane animated video for The Willowz' "Take A Look Around."
