Jean-Pierre Dionnet is an interesting character.
Here’s a google translation of a one-question interview in which Dionnet spins out on comics, film, film history, dragons, etc., and reveals that he’s working on a film with Marc Caro, co-director of City of Lost Children.
Dionnet’s also been a producer for a number of films, including some in Hong Kong — he’s got a DVD label, Asian Star, which releases remasters of classic HK movies, and he recently announced a collaboration with Tsui Hark, producer of The Killer and director of the entire Once Upon a Time in China series.
Recently (and this is how I came across his name) he was mentioned in connection with the revitalization of Tekkon Kinkreet, though he’s not listed in the credits.
Aside: the Google French translation has made online translation palatable for me — Babelfish was never any better than a worst-case scenario, but once again Google has given me hope.« previously: Cartoon Villain | Home | next: Le Génie de la Boîte de Raviolis »
