Earlier this week, we wrote a massive update on the many projects of director Michel Gondry. One of those projects was an untitled time travel movie set to star Ellen Page. We also mentioned a project called Return of the Ice Kids, which is about a group of teenagers who develop a form of water that makes you hear music when you drink it. Now, The Playlist reports that Return of the Ice Kids is the Ellen Page movie. What’s confusing is this is how Gondry described the Page project:
“I’d like to do a movie of this size with my own story, which would be quite amazing. But we’ll see,” he said. “I’m developing a screenplay with a writer right now about kids who travel [into] the future by mistake and a machine [that] keeps people younger… ehhh, it’s complicated to explain…Ellen Page is supposed to be the main character…She’d play Nancy, a young woman who participates in the discovery and changes the world.”
I’m guess the discovery is the special water, but that’s just a theory. But while that movie goes through the writing process, Gondry plans to make The We & The I his follow-up feature to The Green Hornet. The film is an indie drama that, like his previous films Dave Chappelle’s Block Party and Be Kind Rewind, focuses on art as a community endeavor.
