As to whether or not a deal can be made remains to be seen.

The Playlist is reporting that Michel Gondry will direct a film adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s novel Ubik. But before he can do that, he has to produce The We and I
“It’s about the group effect, how people in groups transform when the group is dislocated, because everyone jumps out of the bus at different times, there is a smaller group and how the relationships evolve,” Gondry told us adding, “It’s not [well-known] actors, it’s going to be kids from a school in the Bronx. I love kids and just [regular] people too because they are not polluted by the medium. They come as they are and they have beautiful stories to tell, so I want to show that.” The drama will revolve around “35 kids going to school on a bus” and will thematically delve into “how the group affects the individual.” We’re definitely curious.
The blog also reports that Gondry is also slowly at work on a documentary about Noam Chomsky, but it’s something he’s giving himself a bit more time on. He’s hand animating it and says he hopes it’s done within the next couple of years.
