Spike Jonze Finally Has Another Movie Coming Out
Though we haven't really heard much about it for the last year or so, Spike Jonze has quietly been working on his long-awaited feature follow-up to 2009's Where the Wild Things Are, and it will surprisingly be hitting theaters this fall. Titled Her, the film continues Joaquin Phoenix's post-fake-crazy work with late-'90s breakout auteurs, casting the actor as a guy who falls in love with the female voice of a computer program, at last finding a legitimate use for Siri.
Warner Bros. has just announced Her's November 20 release date, and has also added a bunch of impressive names to the cast, listing Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton, Olivia Wilde, Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Pratt among the stars. Presumably, one will provide the voice of the computer, while the rest will provide examples for Pratt's argument on why physical bodies can be sort of nice.
