Jean-Luc Godard 3D Movie: GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE

Jean-Luc GodardJean-Luc Godard at your local multiplex? Well, not exactly. Although the French-born, Swiss-based Godard, 81, is currently working on a 3D movie project, it's not a Transformers or a Men in Black sequel. Under the aegis of Wild Bunch, Godard's first 3D foray is called Adieu au langage / Goodbye to Language.

According to Screen International, Goodbye to Language "explores cinema's search to reinvent itself with the language of 3D through a couple's efforts to communicate to save their relationship." In the cast: Héloïse Godet, Zoé Bruneau, Kamel Abdelli, Richard Chevalier, and Jessica Erickson. Shooting, with Godard's own cell-phone-based "rudimentary" 3D camera, should begin in the summer.

In The New Yorker back in 2010, Godard was quoted as saying that he likes “when new techniques are introduced. Because it doesn't have any rules yet.” (Really, 3D has been around for decades. Godard has never heard of Bwana Devil or House of Wax?) The Breathless director then added that his 3D project would be about "a man and his wife who no longer speak the same language. The dog they take on walks then intervenes and speaks. How I'll do it, I don't yet know. The rest is simple.”

Previous arthouse filmmakers who have toyed with 3D include Wim Wenders (Pina) and Werner Herzog (Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
