‘Her’ director Spike Jonze wants to make … video games?

director spike jonze wants make video games her poster

Spike Jonze, the man who birthed films like Being John MalkovichWhere the Wild Things Are, Adaptation, and the upcoming Her into the world, is a fan of video games. More than that, he’s had actual discussions about making one with Her producer Megan Ellison!

This detail came out of a post-screening Q&A session that Jonze attended. Her, the story of a man (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with an artificial intelligence being (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), opens on December 18, 2013, and it features a couple of fictitious video games. This led to a question from an audience member about Jonze’s interest in the medium, and he admitted both that he’s a fan and that he’s chatted with Ellison about making a game (via Badass Digest).

All of which brings us to the question: what the heck would a Spike Jonze-produced video game look like? Would it be this? Or this? Certainly not this … right?
