Spike Jonze

The word on the street around Austin is that Spike Jonze is casting a secret project. The cast is mostly teen actors and according to /Film, the story centers on friends growing apart.

The film is rumored to be a collaboration with the band Arcade Fire, whom you may remember from their song “Wake Up” which has had a bit of a revival since it’s inclusion in the trailer for WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE.  Since the trailer, that song has been covered by many other artists and it’s become a bit ubiquitous despite being over five years old. 

There have been various reports confirming and denying that this project is underway.  The Playlist is reporting that the band’s publicist denied the claims.  But they were quick to point out that this may be an attempt “to keep fans at bay until official word comes down the proper channels.”

It seems plausible as Jonze is scheduled to be in town for another engagement next week and I’d imagine a man with such a busy schedule would like to multitask in such a filmmaker friendly city like Austin.  For now my fellow Austinites and I will keep our eyes peeled for any Jonze/Arcade Fire sightings.

Spike has released a few short films lately including I’M HERE (watch online) and WE WERE ONCE A FAIRYTALE (watch online).  Hopefully he’ll line up a new feature film as well.  As always, we’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.  Keep your fingers crossed people.
