Jean-Pierre Jeunet certainly likes to take his time getting him movies right, as since Delicatessen in 1991 he’s averaged one movies every four years, but that has included delights such as The City Of Lost Children, Ameli and Micmacs.
Now he’s returning with The Young and Prodigious Spivet, which is both his first 3D film and his first movie set in the US. Based on the book The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet by Reif Larsen, the film is about ‘A 12-year-old cartography enthusiast in an eccentric family, who travels across country hidden on board a freight train after being invited to the Smithsonian Institute.’
The movie stars Helena Bonham Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, Callum Keith Rennie. No release date it currently set, but it should be in cinemas later this year.
