Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are) has been casting for a new project in Austin, Texas. According to /Film, the Oscar nominated director has been looking mainly for actors in their late teens. The film is apparently about “friends growing apart“. Spike plans to collaborate with the indie rock band Arcade Fire, whose music he used in the trailer for his last film Where the Wild Things Are.
It’s also been speculated that the project that he’s working on is another short film. Spike Jonze, who started out as a music video director, isn’t new to short filmmaking. He just premiered his newest short film I’m Here at the Sundance Film Festival 2010. The film has been released online for all to view here. As a fan of Jonze I’m always interested in seeing more and the same applies here.
