EXCLUSIVE: Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is negotiating to acquire an untitled satire that will re-team screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and director Spike Jonze, the tandem behind the mind-benders Adaptation and Being John Malkovich. The project was pitched recently to financiers, and I'm told it's a satire about how world leaders gather to figure out all the seismic events that will take place in the worlds, from oil prices to wars that will be waged. The ask for the script is low six-against 7-figures. Ellison, the daughter of Oracle founder Larry Ellison and sister of Paramount-based financier-producer David Ellison, has become an active buyer of tastemaker film projects that include The Wettest County in the World and Cogan's Trade, as well as one of the projects mobilizing on Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. She was an executive producer on the Joel and Ethan Coen-directed True Grit, which became a Best Picture Oscar nominee.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Megan Ellison is like a cinematic god. Seriously, we should create an altar for her here and worship her and pray to her daily.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

A billionaire party girl with great taste in film?  I'd hit that.

Man, this girl might end up legendary. Maybe she'll lose all her dad's money by producing the best movies of all time, that'd be a great story.

Joaquin Phoenix Attached To Star In Spike Jonze & Charlie Kaufman’s Untitled Satire
Film Now Has At A Home At Warner Bros.


Bravo, Joaquin Phoenix, Bravo. After effectively putting himself into the wilderness following the faux/mock-doc “I’m Still Here” he is marking his comeback by choosing a variety of fantastic projects. He’s currently filming Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “The Master,” he’s going to reteam with James Gray on the period drama “Low Life” and now he’s lined up another outstanding project.

Twitch reports that Phoenix is now attached to star in the gestating untitled project from the duo of Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman. Awesome. The film, backed Megan Ellison‘s Annapurna Productions now has additional support courtesy of Warner Bros. who are providing a home for the film. While it’s not quite clear, we presume the former is financing with the studio set to distribute the picture.

Details on the project are still under wraps but it seems as ambitious as their previous collaborations, 1999’s “Being John Malkovich” and 2002’s “Adaptation.” The film was previously reported to be “a satire about how world leaders gather to figure out all the seismic events that will take place in the world, from oil prices to wars that will be waged.” Jonze will direct from a script written by Kaufman.

This likely means that the other project Jonze and Kaufman were shopping around town “Frank Or Francis” is on the backburner for now. The scathing Hollywood story about the relationship between a film director and online blogger was looking for financing, but this project now seems to be off and running.

Damn, what else can we say? Jonze and Kaufman have been away too long but they are coming back with a blaze of glory. No word on when this will roll but hopefully Phoenix wraps up soon with PTA and this can get going before the end of the year.

Samantha Morton, Amy Adams And Carey Mulligan Circle Spike Jonze Film
Source: Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: I am hearing that Samantha Morton, Amy Adams and Carey Mulligan are in discussions to star with Joaquin Phoenix in the untitled project that Spike Jonze will direct, with a script by his Being John Malkovich and Adaptation scribe Charlie Kaufman. It’s very difficult to get any confirmation on the project because the filmmaker is secretive as is the financier, Megan Ellison of Annapurna Pictures. Deadline was first to reveal the project when it was shopped early last year to financiers and Ellison took it off the table.

At the time, I’d heard the film is a satire about how world leaders gather to figure out all the seismic events that will take place in the worlds, from oil prices to wars that will be waged. The Principato-Young-repped Morton next stars in John Carter; the WME/Brillstein Entertainment Partners-repped Amy Adams next plays Lois Lane in Man of Steel and soon stars with Clint Eastwood and Justin Timberlake in Trouble with the Curve; the CAA-repped Mulligan stars in The Great Gatsby and is shooting Inside Llewyn Davis for Joel and Ethan Coen.

Rooney Mara Will Replace Carey Mulligan in Spike Jonze's New Film

It's been 10 years since Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze last collaborated, on the hugely beloved Adaptation, but the distinctive writer and director are gearing up to work together again, with Jonze planning to direct Kaufman's script this year. Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix and Samantha Morton are already on board, and though Carey Mulligan had been circling a role for a while, she apparently can't make the schedule work, which leaves an opening that clearly can only be filled by another woman recently Oscar-nominated for her breakthrough role.

According to Variety, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara is in final negotiations to join the film, playing an unspecified role in the story about a man who falls in love with the voice of a computer. Mara's currently at work on The Bitter Pill with Steven Soderbergh, but she'll have the time to make the move over to Jonze's movie, which should be ready to go into production fairly soon.

Mara also had Terrence Malick's new film Lawless coming at some point soon, though given Malick's habits you never really know when his films will come out, and presumably she's still on board for The Girl Who Played With Fire, the Dragon Tattoo sequel that as of January was set to shoot at the end of this year. But with David Fincher not looking all that interested in returning for Played with Fire, it wouldn't be hard to imagine that Mara wouldn't be too interested either, so she's cramming her resume full of auteur-driven films before she goes back to the grueling Lisbeth Salander role.

So what's this role that both Carey Mulligan and Rooney Mara would be up for playing? Both actresses have incredible ranges from the limited work we've seen from them, so it's fairly hard to guess. Anyone out there want to throw out some wild ideas?

Although there are rumors that this is for a project Spike wrote himself, not involving Kaufman.

Spike Jonze's Sci-Fi Romance 'Her' Finally Gets A Release Date
Source: The Playlist
 
It feels like an age since we've had a Spike Jonze movie in theaters. Of course the filmmaker has never had a particular sense of urgency to his output, with only three films in fourteen years, and a seven year gap between "Adaptation" and 2009's "Where The Wild Things Are." Even with terrific shorts like "I'm Here" to tide us over we've been looking longingly out the window for news of the director's next film, "Her."

Turns out we should have been spending less time looking out the window, and more time keeping an eye on Box Office Mojo's release calendar, as it's revealed that Warner Bros will be releasing the film on Wednesday November 20th. The film, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as a man in the near-future who falls in love with his operating system, also features Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde. The film is opening the same week as "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Delivery Man" and "Nebraska," and if you're in L.A, you can get a look even earlier, as Jonze will be presenting footage at the LA Film Festival next month.

It looks cute. The plot kinda reminds me of this Vonnegut short story where this dude falls love with a fridge robot.
