Ellen Page To Star In Michel Gondry Time-Travel Flick

Green Hornet director Michel Gondry is teaming up with Ghost World scribe Daniel Clowes to create a time-travel drama starring Ellen "Juno Pryde" Page. Looks like Gondry's trying to sweep both the Saturn and Independent Spirit Awards with this one.

Here's some Gondry breaking news from SXSW - MTV reports that the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director is working with Clowes and Keith Bunin, a writer from HBO's In Treatment, on a time-travel movie about young people visiting the future. Gondry confirms that Ellen Page will star as Nancy, which is incidentally the same name as one of the protagonists of Rudy Rucker's 1984 sci-fi novel The Master of Space and Time. Gondry was set to adapt Rucker's novel, but that project has since gone belly-up.

Clowes is also working with Gondry on Megalomania, an animated film about a group of children who harness the power of hair to save the world from an evil dictatorship. Seth Rogen, Steve Buscemi, and Juliette Lewis will be providing voices.

As for the director's other future projects, Gondry is currently writing The Return of The Ice Kids, a film about a curious form of water that allows you to hear music upon drinking it.
