The Ninth Cloud (also known under the working titles Bob's Not Gay,[1] Men Don't Lie,[2] and Cloud Nine) is an 2014 independent comedy-drama film directed by Jane Spencer. The film stars Megan Maczko as Zena, a dreamy young woman that falls in love with an American expatriate.

Synopsis[edit]

Zara is a beautiful vulnerable young London woman that goes through her life in a dream-like haze. She falls in love with an American expatriate aspiring theatre director, whom she idolizes as perfect.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Plans to film The Ninth Cloud (then titled Bob's Not Gay) were announced in 2006.[3] The following year William Baldwin, Irène Jacob, and Julia Jentsch signed on to perform in the film, and filming was slated to begin May 2007 in Bucharest.[4] Financial difficulties delayed shooting and the film's working title and star lineup changed several times.[5] Actor Guillaume Depardieu was at one point attached to the movie but Spencer was forced to recast after Depardieu died in 2008.[5] After casting Madsen and Maczko,[6] Spencer began and completed principal shooting in 2011 and the film was in post production in 2012 and 2013.[5][7]
