WRONG Director Wraps On REALITE - With Jon Heder - And WRONG COPS. Plenty Of Weirdness Coming To Screens Soon.

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Here's the thing about Wrong and Rubber director Quentin Dupieux. He is very, very strange and also - as it is becoming quite clear - very, very prolific. Dupieux is taking full advantage of the success of his previous features by keeping as many projects running as he can and he has just wrapped production on a pair of new features.

Up first is Wrong Cops, the seven chapter comedy that he has been shooting in chunks with Mark Burnham, Eric Judor, Steve Little, Marilyn Manson, Grace Zabriskie, and - according to Dupieux's Twitter account - Eric Wareheim starring. The first chapter screened in Cannes and now the full feature is wrapped and ready to edit.

Also ready to edit is Realite, another off kilter comedy starring Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder - that's him in the rat suit - with Alain Chabat, Elodie Bouchez and Jonathan Lambert. Cineuropa describes the plot like this:

A little 8-year-old girl (called Reality) finds a mysterious video cassette. Her desire to see it rapidly tuns into an obsession. As for Jason (Alain Chabat), a failed filmmaker, he manages to persuade Bob (Jonathan Lambert), a crooked producer, to finance his first horror film. Despite the advice of his wife Alice (Elodie Bouchez), a psychiatrist, Jason progressively loses the plot and starts to confuse dreams with reality. Finally, Denis, an out-of-date television presenter, suddenly loses his confidence because of an imaginary skin disease. He then develops a feeling of being persecuted and loses his points of reference.
With both projects now in post it seems safe to assume we will be seeing at least one of them in Cannes 2013.
