The Where The Wild Things Are director is apparently at the top of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt's list for helming the forthcoming film based on their hit TV show and stage tour.
But asked if he would consider doing it, Jonze told The Independent: "I don't know, but they're hilarious."
He added that his ex-girlfriend Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs was a big fan.
"I haven't seen the stage shows but Karen gave me the DVD. It's one of her favourite shows."
