Olivia Wilde Joins Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, and Amy Adams in Spike Jonze’s New Film

     May 30, 2012


It’s been nearly three years since director Spike Jonze’s last feature, the touching Where the Wild Things Are, but he’s lining up a stacked cast for his next project.  Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, and Amy Adams are all onboard for the untitled film, and now comes word that Olivia Wilde has joined the cast as well.  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.  Buried in a Deadline article announcing the fact that Sony Pictures Worldwide has struck a deal with Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures to distribute the film internationally is the addition of Wilde to the cast.  The actress herself then took to Twitter to confirm her involvement in the pic.

Wilde has a number of high profile and impressive projects on her upcoming slate.  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 HaggisThird Person, and she’s in talks to join the stellar cast of Peter Bogdanovich’s upcoming comedy Squirrels to the Nuts.

    Wow! Spike Jonz to rip off a book called Galatea 2.0. When computer scientists, hoping to populate a computer using machine learning, turn to a history professor to feed the system data; they instantly realize their mistake. After hours and hours of asking the “A.I” questions the professor internalizes and personifies her responses, only to discover he is falling in love with her. When the project is canned our history professor gets the curtain lifted and is forced to admit how stupid he was.

      lol. the only similarity is the man falling in love with a “computer voice,” which in this movie supposedly belongs to a smartphone. doesn’t qualify as “ripping off.”

    This is a plot line from The Big Bang Theory – where Raj buys an iphone and falls in love with Siri. He even buys the phone ‘dresses’ made from sparkly phone covers, and allows her to choose where to go to dinner. Hmm, JP making gurgling noises at her the phone screen is an image I don’t want!!!
