The Brizzi Brothers and Mick Jagger

Paul and Gaetan Brizzi

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER reports that brothers Paul and Ga”tan Brizzi, most famous for directing the “Firebird Suite” in FANTASIA 2000, will be writing and directing the animated film RUBY TUESDAY, featuring twelve songs by the Rolling Stones. According to the REPORTER, the story is “a Faustian tale of a single mother searching for happiness in New York.” The project was initiated by the Brizzis, who approached Jagger’s camp with the idea. Filmmaker Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp is co-producing, financing and distributing the film, which is set for 2008 release. Few details have been announced about the project though it certainly sounds intriguing. And I can’t help but point out that it’s yet another example of how the most mature and distinctive animated features are originating out of Europe and Japan and not the US.
