  1. And now that the almighty Google has told me that Scorcese has directed video’s before (Micheal Jackson’s Bad for example) I’m pretty sure it’s him!

  5. With such an album title it’s a shame we lost Stanley Kubrick. Hope it’s Jordan, guess it’s Scorscese (there have been rumours about this before).

  9. I think it will be a live performance of “Vertigo.” I think it’ll be shot at their studio HQ and I’d think it would by directed by Richie Smyth

  15. I don’t give beans about who’s directing it, but I vote for another spinny video, a-la EBTTRT. Vertigo? Spinny dizzy things? Come on.

    OR, it should be a take-off of the movie Vertigo.

  19. Well, we haven’t been told who, but we did hear ‘french’ and ‘has worked with White Stripes’, so we’re guessing it must be the Gondry brothers.

  21. Did the Gondry Bros do the video for Seven Nation Army? If the next U2 video is anywhere near as good as that one I’ll be tres content!

  23. OK then it’s ‘Alex and Martin’?

    I was told it was ‘two french guys’ so I figured Michel and Olivier Gondry. Didn’t know there are more French directors who work in pairs.
