“Mr. Nobody,” wild and imaginative sci-fi fantasy, comes from Belgian filmmaker (writer-director) Jaco van Dormael.
“Toto the Hero” (“Toto le héros”) was Jaco Van Dormael’s debut feature. Since Toto, he’s directed the romantic fantasy “The Eighth Day” and “Lumière and Company.”
His new movie “Mr. Nobody” was shot in both Germany and Quebec, Canada throughout 2007 and the first and incredible trailer for his movie has finally debuted.
Mr. Nemo Nobody is 35 years old. He lives an ordinary life with his wife, Elise and three kids but, somehow, he wakes up one day and finds himself in the year 2092. In that time when Mars is a vacation spot, at 120, Mr. Nobody is both the oldest man in the world and the last mortal of a new mankind where nobody dies anymore. But that doesn’t seem to interest or bother him very much. The only questions that preoccupy him in the present is whether he lived the right life for himself, loved the woman whom he was supposed to love, and had the children whom he was meant to have… now his purpose is to find the right answer.
Described as a multi-layered love story, it sees Jared Leto (“Fight Club,” “Requiem for a Dream”) as Nemo. “Mr. Nobody” also stars Sarah Polley (“My Life Without Me,” “The Secret Life of Words”) as Elise, Diane Kruger (“Inglourious Basterds”) as Anna, Linh Dan Pham, Rhys Ifans and Natasha Little among others.
Right now, there’s no U.S. release date. The only currently known release dates are in October for Belgium and Finland and November for Norway.
