Armed intruder barricades himself inside the home of film director Spike Jonze

An intruder wielding a knife barricaded himself inside the home of acclaimed film director Spike Jonez, sparking a standoff with SWAT officers, authorities say.

Police were called to the California home of the Academy Award winning director and producer, 49, whose real name is Adam Spiegel, at around 6am today.  

Once officers arrived, the burglar refused to come out on the Los Feliz property and the SWAT team was then called as reinforcement, authorities say.

It is understood that Spiegel came face to face with the intruder but was able to leave the house and call the police without being harmed.  

Following a stand-off, the man reportedly surrendered and was taken to hospital at around 11am – it is not known if that man was injured during the arrest.

Spiegel, who is a multiple-time Oscar nominee, won Best Original Screenplay in 2014 for Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson.
