Ok, now that that's out of the way, here's what's new in JJ's world over the last 2 weeks.
Splash's official release date is May 25 (K Recs). He's also got a few songs on the soundtrack to Belle Epine which will be screened for the first time on May 15 @ Cannes - pretty sure a few people will see that one.
Variety describes the film: "a 1980's coming of age drama starring Gallic it-girl Lea Seydoux (also in Riddley Scott's Robin Hood which is opening the festival) as a young woman who loses her mother and immerses herself in the world of motorcycle racing."
He's also working on another sdtk - this time for Director's Bureau (headed by Roman Coppola). Jay is also slated to appear in said film. His second 2010 album, Dream Diary is set for November.
