Drafthouse films acquires ‘Mood Indigo’
Drafthouse Films, the distribution wing of the Alamo Drafthouse empire, it has acquired Michel “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” Gondry’s 2013 movie “Mood Indigo.”
Adapted from Boris Vian’s 1947 novel “L’Ecume des jours” (“Froth on the Daydream”), it’s love story set in Paris about two newlyweds, Chloe (Audrey Tautou of “Amélie” fame) and Colin (Romain Duris of “The Beat My Heart Skipped”), whose romance is tested when a flower begins to grow in Chloe’s lungs. A multi-city traditional theatrical release is planned for 2014.
The picture made its American debut at Fantastic Fest last September. The book has been adapted into a 1968 French film with the English title “Spray of the Days,” a 1981 opera by Russian composer Edison Denisov and a 2001 Japanese film called “Chloe.”
