If you've been waiting for that Daniel Clowes and Michel Gondry, perfectly-matched collaboration for Rudy Rucker's Master of Space and Time, take a deep breath -- it looks like that project might be biting the dust. However, that doesn't mean we won't see Gondry tackle some other spacey material. He has told MTV that he is going to tackle his first animated film, as a collaboration with his son, Paul. And this is the point where people either "awh" at the sweetness, or recoil in fear with memories of Robert Rodriguez's familial fare and say: "No! Did he not see The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl?!"

While Rodriguez's attempt didn't come off as well as filmgoers hoped, I'm still taken with this idea. Gondry told MTV that the film is "going to be quite amazing," and continued: "We're translating our relationship into a futuristic story with a dictator and a rebel. He's the dictator in the story [and] it will be based on [his] art." They are not only collaborating on the story itself, but Paul will co-direct the movie with him. Paul is now 16, so this will be more of an adult collaboration, which should also help things. I think it will be cool to see what the Gondrys create together -- besides, we're talking about the guy who re-sassed the Rubik's Cube. I have faith. But this is just my opinion -- what do you think?
