Written by Justin Long, Christian Long and Keir O’Donnell, the indie flick A Case of You tells the story of a young writer named Sam (Justin Long), who has a crush on a cute and quirky barista named Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood). By studying her Facebook profile, he makes himself into the man of her dreams, in order to woo her, but when she falls for his alter ego, he realizes that he needs to tell her the truth, even though he could lose her.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor/screenwriter Justin Long talked about where the idea for this story came from, what their writing process was like, how writing about a subject like this made him rethink the way he communicates with people, and making sure this character never came across like a creepy cyber-stalker. He also talked about shooting the Kevin Smith horror movie Tusk, and writing a TV pilot with his brother, that he expects to also star in. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
