Spike “I’m Friends With Rappers, Too” Jonze has been behind some big name films: Where the Wild Things Are, Jackass: The Movie, uh, Björk: Volumen Plus (?), the music video for Otis was pretty great… Next subject? iPhones and romance.
Deadline claims Jonze’s next two-hour quirk GIF is pretty strange!
The film is about a guy who falls in love with the voice of a computer, similar to the Siri feature on the new iPhone.
That sounds depressing, given that Siri often falls short of communicating in a relatable fashion, and by now, most people don’t even talk to her at all. This will be a tragedy! Amy Adams and Carey Mulligan are rumoured to star (as the Siri clone? Personified?) along with Joaquin Phoenix, who scowls well enough to play a hurt Apple customer. [Deadline via Creators Project]
