Opening Ceremony to stage a Spike Jonze play during NYFW
Well-known in the fashion world for its conceptual advertisements and unique fashion shows, Opening Ceremony is teaming up once again with director Spike Jonze (Her) and comedic actor Jonah Hill (21 Jump Street) to co-write a one-act play to be staged during New York Fashion Week instead of a traditional fashion show.
Jonze, who has done fashion capsules with Opening Ceremony for his films Where The Wild Things Are and Her, will direct a cast of actors and models for the fashionable play. The story line is still being finalised, according to OC co-founder Humberto Leon, who also stated the play was Jonze's idea, as was bringing in Hill to join the team.
"We were really excited about him writing an original script and seeing how this would take shape," said Leon about the show, which is scheduled for September 7.
