New Details on Spike Jonze’s Next Project


Doesn’t it seem like forever ago that Where The Wild Things Are? was in theaters? OK, so in reality, it was only 2009, but as longtime Spike Jonze fans we’ve been anxiously awaiting news of his next project, which we already know stars Joaquin Phoenix and his co-star in The Master, Amy Adams, alongside Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, and Samantha Morton. Finally, we have an official synopsis for the untitled film, and it sounds just as delightfully weird as we’d hoped:

“In the not so distant future, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system designed to meet the user’s every needs. To Theodore’s surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all.”

We’re curious which of the lovely ladies above will be playing the voice of the operating system. Or perhaps, knowing how much the wildly creative filmmaker enjoys playing with his audience, it will be all of them? Regardless, given the director, cast, and crazy storyline, this is one project that we’ll be watching closely in the months to come. [via The Playlist]
