Tokyo Scorecard: Two Out Of Three Aint Bad

Michel Gondry, Leos Carax and Bong Joon Ho are all in negotiations to each direct one third of Tokyo, a Nipponese take on New York Stories-style anthology films. Shooting is likely to take place around July or August time.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the filmmakers are to be given 'liberal access to city locations in return for the Tokyo-centric subject matter' - so, essentially it will be a propoganda film. Buy American!

All joking aside, I'm quite jealous. This sounds like a wonderful job to get as a director. And you know what, I'm a complete sucker for artists' impressions of places that are foreign to them. Can't wait.
