Studiocanal Reteams Michel Gondry on ‘Microbe et Gasoil’

PARIS– Studiocanal is set to reteam with Michel Gondry on “Microbe et Gasoil,” the French helmer’s follow-up to “Mood Indigo.”

Pic is a comedy turning on two left-of-field teenagers, Microbe and Gasoil, who, instead of spending their summer vacations with their parents, decide to build their own car and embark on a doomed yet colorful road trip across France.

A pair of newcomers will be cast in the lead roles. Audrey Tautou (“Amelie,” “Mood Indigo”) will also star.

Shooting will take place in Ile de France (Paris and its suburbs) and Bourgogne between August 4 and late October.

Pic is produced by Gondry’s longtime collaborator, Georges Bermann, at Paris-based Partizan. Studiocanal is co-producing, and will be distributing as well as handling international sales.

Studiocanal worked with Gondry on his latest feature film, “Mood Indigo,” a romantic fantasy pic based on Boris Vian’s “Froth on the Daydream.”

Gondry, whose best known credits include “Eternel Sushine of the Spotless Mind” and “Be Kind Rewind,” previously explored the themes of adolescence and friendship with the Bronx-set “The We and The I,” also produced by Partizan.

The French helmer’s “Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy,” an animated doc featuring a conversation with Noam Chomsky, was released in the U.S. by IFC last december.
