Even more interesting is this: The film isn’t just one movie—it’s a double feature project consisting of two parts: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers.

It’s an ambitious project for its writer-director, Ned Benson, who has previously only made short films. I don’t know about you, Bettys, but I think it sounds fascinating. The double feature is due for release in 2013.
