Where the Wild Things Are



I've been hearing rumors for years that a film version of Where The Wild Things Are was going to be made. The girls looove the book and can recite almost every page on their own.
I read tonight that production is basically finished. It will most likely be another year before it hits theaters though, due to the big wigs at Legendary and Warner Brothers thinking the film is leaning a bit too much toward art house flick instead of Hollywood blockbuster (which is unfortunate because in my opinion art house trumps blockbuster any day of the week.)

The better news is that the script has been written by Dave Eggers (Pick up a copy of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, if you haven't already. You won't be disappointed.) and directed by Spike Jonze. How can it NOT be brilliant?! I'm actually happy that we have another year to wait .. that way the girls will be a bit older and ready for the whole experience.

Yippee.
