Anne Hathaway Plays Another Catwoman in New R.E.M. Video Directed by James Franco (Video)
The video for "That Someone Is You," thought never to see the light of day, is finally released using footage of Franco and Hathaway's cut "Grease" Academy Awards performance.
Alt-rock icons R.E.M. split more than a year ago, but thanks to James Franco they have not been forgotten.
A couple weeks ago we saw a video for R.E.M.'s Patti Smith collaboration, "Blue," from the band’s final album, 2011’s Collapse Into Now, directed by the multi-talented Franco. It starred Lindsay Lohan mid-photo shoot with Terry Richardson as well as a host of other iconic Los Angeles imagery on Super-8 film.
Now another Franco-directed video has been released. This time for R.E.M.’s "That Someone is You" from the same album. It’s a fun jaunting of behind-the-scenes footage from his and Anne Hathaway's pretty spot-on Grease skit from the 2011 Oscars (that ended up being cut from the original telecast), but there is a small, strange catch: Hathaway's face is covered throughout the video by a giant cat's head. That's presumably to avoid any legal dilemmas or management tangles but it also recalls the L.A. hip-hop freak-out troupe Odd Future's aesthetic cat infatuation.
Franco's "That Someone is You" video was released just in time for the 25th anniversary of the band's "The One I Love" entering the U.K. singles chart in 1987.
