Olivia Wilde, Spike Jonze Project

Filmmaker Spike Jonze is apparently not content to just settle for the most talented cast in Hollywood to join his next film. Evidently he wants the most beautiful one as well. In a Deadline report about Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions landing international rights from for Jonze's next untitled project, the trade drops the little nugget of info that Olivia Wilde has also joined the cast. 

Already starring Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney MaraAmy Adams and Samantha Morton, the Jonze-pennd project apparently revolves around a man who falls in love with a Siri-like computer voice presumably on an iPhone device. The addition of Wilde makes the already-anticipated film all the more enticing.

Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures are producing and they struck the deal with SPWA. The picture will be Jonze's first since 2009's “Where the Wild Things Are” and his first solo-written original screenplay. Though Jonze did pen the short film “I’m Here” about two robots who fall in love with each other (starring Andrew Garfield and Sienna Guillory) and co-wrote ‘Wild Things.’ We recommend the short if you haven't seen it and it's easy to find online.

The trade also reports that that David O. Russell’s American Bullshit” starring Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper is going forward as well. Annapurna is also now officially on board, and their international deal with Sony Worldwide also applies to Russell’s picture. Thank god. Russell has flirted with a dozen projects in the last two years and dropped many of them in quick succession (films like "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies," “Uncharted," plus a few more that look like they are stalled or currently idling) and it's nice to see the director not having to wait years in between movies. His next film, "The Silver Linings Playbook, also stars Cooper and opens on November 21st.
