Drafthouse Acquires Michel Gondry’s ‘Mood Indigo’ For U.S.
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.
