Spike Jonze to Team Up with Marijuana Retailer on Short Film

Academy Award winning filmmaker Spike Jonze has been tapped by the upscale cannabis producer and retailer MedMen to  direct a short film on cannabis history.

There are few details available about Jonze's cannabis focused short film for the California-based dispensary chain. However, Jesse Williams of 'Grey's Anatomy' fame is slated to appear in the film and shooting has already begun in LA, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is set to follow the entire history of cannabis in the US from the pre-prohibition era to the current day. 

Jonze rose to fame more than two decades ago for directing music videos for Weezer, the Beastie Boys, Fatboy Slim and many other acts before turning his attention to feature-length films. In 2013, Jonez's romantic sci-fi drama 'Her' nabbed the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. In recent years, Jonez has directed a number of high-profile films for brands like Apple and the French fashion house Kenzo in recent years. 

Los Angeles Magazine suggests that eager viewers will be able to catch the Jonze led feature when it begins streaming online later this month.

Greece is a small and picturesque country, occupying an Alabama-sized 50,000 square miles of mountainous terrain replete with thousands of islands, age-old ruins, and the longest coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. It is home to many ancient traditions that span centuries, like the theatrical art forms of drama, tragedy, and satire that were born there to honor Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, fertility, madness, and ecstasy. Greece is also also the birthplace of direct democracy, a form of government which continues to this day.
