Wasn't there also something about Godard perhaps directing Bonnie & Clyde for his American debut at one point?
Yes, the screenwriters approached Truffaut, who turned it down because he was about to do Fahrenheit. He in turn showed it to Godard - this was summer '64 in between Une Femme mariée and Alphaville - and there were meetings but it didn't work out.

And Godard famously scared the producers off with his clear disinterest in the material, making clear he would take their money and doing as he pleased. I believe a suggestion of filming in Vietnam is what severed talks.

I just checked and the image is still available on Adrian Martin's FB account. I couldn't find any other online source for the image which explains why I linked to AM's post.

I'm not sure what the link is (I can't access it either) but here is an article by Nick Newman from just after Christmas:

I've yet to catch a Godard feature in a theater. Maybe this will be the one!

It was either New Jersey or Japan, depending on whose version you believe—the suggestion came up after Godard said he was so excited about the project that he wanted to start shooting it in just a few months (January '65), even though the screenplay (which Godard probably wouldn't have used anyway) was still only a first draft and there was no studio deal yet in place. The producers pointed out that the weather in Texas wouldn't be right in January, prompting Godard's remark. He also purportedly complained that "I'm talking cinema and you're talking meteorology."
