MISTER LONELY DETAILS

Celluloid Dreams have more news of Mister Lonely, with new cast and story information. Jean-Pierre Leaud will act, playing a character by the name of Renard. Jeremy Scott is also confirmed as costume designer. The story, they say, is of “a young American man lost in Paris. He scratches out a living as a Michael Jackson look-alike, dancing on the streets, public parks, tourist spots and trade shows. Different from everyone else – he feels as if heís floating between two worlds. During a car show Michael Jackson meets Marilyn Monroe. Haunted by her angelic beauty he follows her to a commune in the Highlands, joining her husband Charlie Chaplin and her daughter Shirley Temple. A place where everyone is famous and no-one gets old. Here, The Pope, The Queen of England, Madonna, James Dean and other impersonators build a stage in the hope that the world will visit and watch them perform. Nuns fall out of airplanes and children ride pigs. Everything is beautiful. Until the world shifts, and reality intrudes on their utopian dream.” Thanks to Chris Lusher.
