Like most people, we’re big fans of Michel Gondry’s work, and his upcoming projects are always something to look forward to.

His next film, The We and the I, has been selected to open the Directors’ Fortnight section of the Cannes Film Festival this month, and now the first poster for the film has made its way online, as well as 12* new hi-res images.

The project is a little shrouded in mystery, with the following synopsis not revealing too much:

“The We and the I is the heartfelt and comical story of the final bus ride home for a group of young high school students and graduates. As kids depart the bus for the last time, we get to learn about these graduates as they step into the world – their love, their conflicts, their despair and their hope.”

It’s thought that elements of time travel and/or sci-fi will make up part of the story, which makes it all the more intriguing.

Gondry has penned the script alongside debut writers Jeffrey Grimshaw and Paul Proch, and has gone for a cast of newcomers in the young kids.

Mars Distribution, the same French distributors of Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love, will be releasing the film in France, and it will no doubt be much sought-after at the festival for distribution rights elsewhere.

No word yet on a release date, but definitely the sooner the better. For now, here’s the first poster for the film to enjoy, along with these great new images. As usual with everything below, you can click to enlarge.
