Then MTV then talked with the director, who offered yet another science fiction feature. He says that he's working with writer (Keith Bunin) on a time travel piece, and that Ellen Page will star. It sounds like MTV is confusing the dueling pics, as they're assuming the project that's "similar" to Master is the time travel piece, when Playlist says the similar project is Megalomania. I assume that these are, indeed, different projects, since Megalomania is about kids who discover a way to create energy from hair, which ends up in a class divide where the rich keep their hair, and the poor run around bald, which doesn't sounds very time-travel-y.
Confusion aside, here's the kicker: Gondry told MTV: "Ellen is supposed to be the main character. She'd play Nancy ... a young woman who participates in a discovery that changes the world." As they note, "Nancy" is the name of one of the key people in Master of Space and Time. Just what is going on? Stay tuned ... hopefully it will all become clear soon.
