Ray Tintori directed two short films: Death to the Tinman and Jettison Your Loved Ones. He also directed a few fantastic music videos for MGMT, The Killers and Chairlift, and co-wrote the adorably post-apocalyptic short Glory at Sea. I wrote a short article a while back on how enthused I was about him, and in what dire need the world was for a full-out feature from the boy.

I rule in favor of this news. All opposed? Is this how court works? Regardless, Ray Tintori is directing a Spike Jonze production of a book "about a mysterious town that endures a long, deadly winter.

Even better was the Wikipedia synopsis: "a fantasia about a war waged by a group of balloonists against the seemingly endless month of February." This is going to rock out with the power of fifty cocks out.
