Drafthouse Films has acquired U.S. rights to Michel Gondry‘s latest feature film Mood Indigo, an adaptation of the Boris Vian novel that stars Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris. A platform release is planned for this year. The love story set in a surreal Paris centers on two newlyweds who must deal with her unusual illness: a flower begins to grow in her lungs. Omar Sy, Aissa Maiga and Gad Elmaleh co-star. The pic’s U.S. debut came at during September’s Fantastic Fest when Gondry showed a shorter cut of the pic crafted for international audiences; the movie opened in France in April. The deal was negotiated by Drafthouse’s James Emanuel Shapiro and Studiocanal SVP International Sales Vanessa Saal.
