Spike Jonze is back. First he wowed us with the trailer for his long-in-the-making adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are. Now MTV.com is reporting that he’s directing a 10-15 minute short film with Kanye West. It apparently will not be a video for West’s “See You In My Nightmares” track off 808’s & Heartbreak, but the song will be featured. Further plot details and release information are being kept under wraps, but whatever it turns out to be, color me excited. Jonze has directed some of the most iconic music videos of the last two decades (Weezer’s “Buddy Holly”, Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice,” and Bjork’s “It’s Oh So Quiet” immediately spring to mind.) And, as the eyebrow-raising video for “Flashing Lights” proved, the two share a bizarre sort of creative chemistry. Let’s just hope there’s no bondage in this one.
