A French website, Telerama, currently has an interview with Wim Wendersin which he discusses The Million Dollar Hotel and his relationship withU2, among other things.

An interpretive translation follows :

"Recently I was in New York with Bono to show him the first edit of theMillion Dollar Hotel, a project that we’ve been working on together (withMel Gibson). Six years have passed since we began working on the project.The story idea is originally Bono’s. It was supposed to be a sciencefiction film, but because of an insufficient budget, we placed the story inthe present day. [It] doesn’t matter, it’s a love story...I met Bono andThe Edge, the guitarist, in Berlin when they were recording their albumAchtung Baby. Back then, they sought me out [in Berlin]. They wanted meto direct a video for Night and Day, a remake of Cole Porter’s, which my apartment. Bono and The Edge are very cultured men who neverbore me. Bono is interested in futuristic ideas [that is, he is avisionary], which is unusual to see from people who are in the musicbusiness. It is exactly because we shared similiar ideas [about thefuture] that he and his group participated in Until the End of the World, afilm that was set in the year 2000."
