Your French film/comics news for the day

Cartoonist Joann Sfar (The Rabbi’s Cat, The Little Vampire) is apparently directing a film about the famed French singer Serge Gainsbourg, titled Je t’Aime Moi Non Plus:

The film … will be more of a fantasy than a biopic and will feature animated creatures, crafted by the “Pan’s Labyrinth” designers, which will symbolize the spirit and imagination of Gainsbourg.

The World of Kane has more details and some concept sketches. The movie will be released in January of next year. Sadly, one of the stars of the upcoming film, Lucy Gordon, who played Gainsbourg’s lover Jane Birkin in the film, was recently found dead of an apparent suicide.
