Gondry Not Directing Ripley’s

The other day, talk swept the Net that famed auteur Michel Gondry has been in talks to take over from Tim Burton at the helm of the “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” film adaptation.

Gondry and star Jim Carrey previously teamed for “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” so the linking of the pair seemed a relatively reasonable assumption.

Gondry’s publicist however told MTV News today that the rumors are, to put it bluntly, “untrue.”
