Time to add another fan favorite to the already formidable 2013 Awards Season preview. Last seen bringing the beloved children’s book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ to life, ‘Being John Malkovich’ director Spike Jonze latest effort, a technology-themed romance entitled ‘Her,’ will bow in November, according to supporting studio Warner Bros.
In a field already filling up, his self-penned story (sorry fans of those collaborations with Charlie Kaufman) about a lonely writer (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his computer’s operating system, will also feature Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton and Olivia Wilde. From the premise alone we can clearly expect more Jonze’s quirkiness. From the actors he’s brought on, there’s a nice balance between the idiosyncratic and the ideal. Expect a limited release on November 20th.
