After almost three years since Spike Jonze
‘s last film, Where the Wild Things Are, he is lining up the cast for his next project. Joaquin Phoenix
, Rooney Mara
, and Amy Adams
are all already signed for the still-untitled film, and now comes word that Olivia Wilde
has joined the cast as well.
The actress herself confirmed her involvement in the pic on her Twitter
The story centers on a man who falls in love with the voice of a computer device, presumably a Siri-like feature on an iPhone (reminded me of the 2002’s movie S1m0ne). There is definitely something alluring in Pygmalion-like theme for Hollywood.
Wilde has a number of high profile and impressive projects up and coming. She recently wrapped Ron Howard
’s F-1 racing drama Rush with Chris Hemsworth
and the comedy Burt Wonderstone with Jim Carrey
, she’s set to star opposite Liam Neeson
in Paul Haggis
’ Third Person, and she’s in talks to join the cast of Peter Bogdanovich
’s upcoming comedy Squirrels to the Nuts.
