Canadian superstars Arcade Fire are slated to score the new Spike Jonze film Her. The film follows a lonely Joaquin Phoenix as he falls in love with a Scarlett Johansson-voiced artificial intelligence robot in the not-too-distant colour-saturated future.
This marks the third collaboration between the director and the Montreal-based band, after Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaption, Where the Wild Things Are) directed a music video for the titular track off Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs, along with a short film titled Scenes from the Suburbs.
