After getting some excellent short films out of his system with Scenes From the Suburbs and I’m Here, director Spike Jonze is finally returning to feature territory and following up Where the Wild Things Are with a film about a man who falls in love with the voice of a Siri-esque computer. Details are, of course, sparse on the project, but we’ve got some new casting to report.
In some news about Sony Pictures acquiring international rights to the film that is set to be produced by Megan Ellison‘s Annapurna Pictures, Deadline also snuck in that Olivia Wilde is part of the cast. She’ll join Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix, stars of Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master (also funded by Ellison), as well as Rooney Mara and Samantha Morton in the upcoming film.
Wilde had a string of duds last year with In Time, The Change-Up and Cowboys & Aliens, but along with a role in Ron Howard‘s Rush on the horizon, this is certainly her most enticing project yet. It’ll be great to see the actress prove herself alongside some of her finest peers, as well as Jonze.
