SimOne (2002)

Also Known As:
S1m0ne

Plot outline:
Viktor Taransky (Al Pacino) is a two-time Oscar-nominated director. His leading lady (Winona Ryder) walks out on him for trivial reasons like not having the biggest trailer on the set. Soon, Viktor is desperate to find a replacement.
But no one is willing to work with him after a string of flops, especially not a big star. Viktor's ex-wife Elaine (Catherine Keener) is the studio head producing the movie. One night, a scientist (Elias Koteas) approaches Viktor, offering help. The scientist is dying but Viktor shrugs him off. A few days later, Viktorhe receives a CD-ROM, which has detailed instructions about how to finish the film using Simulation One. Thus Simone is born. Viktor frantically finishes the movie, inserting her scenes digitally. The film Sunrise, Sunset, of course, becomes a success. Everyone wants to know and meet the overnight sensation. But Viktor is the only one who has access to her --- on a computer file!

Viktor proceeds to make his next film with Simone called Eternity Forever. In one of Simone's funniest moments, Viktor tells Elaine: "Simone doesn't need makeup, a wardrobe allowance or any other perk," leaving Elaine flabbergasted.
But Simone's success drives Viktor up the wall, as he is unable to deal with her success. The Simone empire extends to a perfume line and a recording career (Jennifer Lopez, anyone?). Adding to Viktor's insecurity are two tabloid reporters trying to get the scoop. They publish fake articles to instigate Viktor Taransky and other tabloid methods.
