Ruby Sparks Trailer: The Little Miss Sunshine Filmmakers Return

It's been six years since Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris made their feature directorial debut with Best Picture nominee Little Miss Sunshine, but they'll be back in theaters this summer with the romantic comedy Ruby Sparks. Paul Dano stars as a frustrated writer who hits the jackpot after creating a character named "Ruby Sparks" ... but then the unthinkable happens: The dream girl he invented shows up in the flesh (and she's played by Zoe Kazan, Dano's real-life squeeze, who wrote the screenplay). Is it weird to date someone who's kind of imaginary, especially when you created her and can bestow her with personality traits, like a fluency in French? It is weird ... but hopefully, it will also be cute.
