Three years ago, Miranda July blew many, many minds at the Sundance Film Festival with her debut feature, Me and You and Everyone We Know. Since then, she's turned back to her original crafts of performance art and writing, putting together and publishing a book based on her website, Learning to Love You More, and touring with a new performance piece, "Thing We Don't Understand and Definitely Are Not Going To Talk About." But not much has been heard of her in the film industry, until now.
At recent readings for her other book, No One Belongs Here More Than You, July confirmed that she was indeed at work on her next feature length film, based on "Thing We Don't Understand and Definitely Are Not Going To Talk About." Cinematographer Ed Lachman (I'm Not There, A Prairie Home Companion, The Virgin Suicides) is on board to do some of that fancy magical camera stuff, and it's possible that Jon Brion (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Punch-Drunk Love) will score the project.
It's like a wonderland of indie goodness!
