Arcade Fire set to score new Spike Jonze movie 'Her'
The Canadian band will provide the music for the Joaquin Phoenix-starring film
Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, the film is also set to feature performances from Rooney Mara, Amy Adams and Olivia Wilde. Following the story of a man who falls in love with a computer operating system, it will be released in selected cinemas on November 20.
Speaking about the film at the LA Film Festival earlier this summer, Jonze described it as: "a movie set in the slight future of LA and Joaquin Phoenix's character buys the world's first artificially intelligent operating system... It basically turns into a human, this entity, this consciousness, on his computer."
The project is not the first time Arcade Fire have worked with Jonze, having given him an acoustic version of their song 'Wake Up' for a trailer for the film 'Where The Wild Things Are'. Jonze also took inspiration from their third album 'The Suburbs' to direct a short 30-minute movie 'Scenes From The Suburbs' for the band.
Recently, Arcade Fire have been the subject of internet rumours claiming graffiti of the word 'Reflektor' is a hint at the title for their forthcoming new album.
