We're almost there, guys. November 20th – that's when Spike Jonze's eagerly awaited sci-fi rom-com, Her, will be releasesd. And we say "eagerly awaited" with good reason, given this is the director of Being John Malkovich and Adaptation we're talking about. He's also not released a feature for four long years (2009's Where the Wild Things Are), so yeah, we're totally hyped.
We can now reveal the full cast, and it's a doozy. Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt have just joined the likes of Joaquin Phoenix (yes!), Amy Adams (double yes!), Rooney Mara (triple yes!), Samantha Morton (quadruple yes!) and Olivia Wilde (another yes! albeit smaller!).
Here's some more info on the story:
In the not so distant future, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system 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.
Take a look at Joaquin Phoenix in action, on the set of Her. HE'S STILL HERE!...
Roll on, November 20th.
