Michael Gondry and Alfonso Cuaron along with several other filmmakers are teaming up for the new European kiddie-oriented anthology feature "Tales from the Hanging Head" according to The Huffington Post (via The Playlist)

Frequent Jim Jarmusch collaborator Sara Driver along with Marjane Satrapi ("Persepolis") and Emir Kusturica ("Underground") also helm segments, based on a series of folk tales, which will have the "common thread of metamorphosis".

Driver tells The Columbia Spectator that "They’re from different countries, and the stories are from different countries, and Marjane is going to tie it all together with her incredible animation. The directors have to do every effect in camera or by light and shadow or in very tangible ways so that it brings magic to children. I also made all the fairy tales—I adapted them and brought them up to the present, so it’s also about bringing magic into the present day, for children and adults."
