Director Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are and some of the best music videos of the 1990's) filmed a movie "Her" starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde in mid-2012. Expect a release sometime this year.

The Verge - "Spike Jonze's 'Her' is a romance between Joaquin Phoenix and an operating system"
IndieWire - "Set Photos Unveil A Mustached Joaquin Phoenix In Spike Jonze's Untitled Romance"

"In the not so distant future, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system designed to meet the user's every needs. To Theodore's surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all."

Seems especially relevant with the Manti Te'o story?

Creative Genius: Spike Jonze
