Spike Jonze's 'Her' with Joaquin Phoenix Gets November Release
Late last fall, details of Spike Jonze's most recent film with Joaquin Phoenix finally had some story details and a title locked down. Her is a quirky romance following Theodore (Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system (not unlike iPhone's Siri) 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. And now the film has a release date. More below!
ERC Box Office (via SlashFilm) says Her will hit theaters on November 20th this year, which likely means it has a chance at landing some awards for Annapurna Pictures, the same company behind last year's Zero Dark Thirty. In addition to Phoenix, the cast also includes Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton, Olivia Wilde and Amy Adams. And while this might seem like a collaboration between Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman, the director wrote the film himself this time around. Now that this is confirmed for a release this year, it's easily one of my most anticipated films later this year. How about you?

Oh! Also one of my most anticipated. Big fan of Spike Jonze, Being John Malkovich is like one of my all time favorites and Rooney Mara is so cool! Can't wait.

I'm pretty sure that plot happened in an episode of the big bang theory. Interested to see how it will play out in a full length film.

Why doesn't this guy make more movies? He's a rare talent.

Well, he's an auteur, you know how these guys work.. Also, financing! Original ideas are hard to realize in Hollywood land of sequels, reboots and remakes.

Well all that goes without saying...but Paul Thomas Anderson and Wes Anderson make very similarly awesome movies but they've made a lot more than three

I love the fact that he is incorporating a love story in telling us how technology can isolate us, brilliant.
