Be Kind Rewrite: Michel Gondry Begins Journey of “Le Livre des solutions” with Pierre Niney

We tapped out of Michel Gondry cinema back when Be Kind Rewind was released, and suddenly the filmmaker is now at the dozen film mark with what feels like an alluring project due to the collection of players he has assembled for Le Livre des solutions. During Cannes we learned that Pierre Niney would topline the project. Lensing began this week with Blanche Gardin (out off the Critics’ Week debut of the funny-bone Portugal project Everybody Loves Jeanne), Camille Rutherford (recently seen in Cannes Premiere selected The Night of the 12th), Vincent Elbaz, Frankie Wallach and veteran thesp Françoise Lebrun (most recently seen in Vortex). Partizan Films’ Georges Bermann is producing.

Written by Gondry, this will revolve around a director (Niney) seeking to vanquish his demons which are stifling his creativity. The six-week shoot will take place in and outside of Paris.
