When The Wild Things Movie Will Be

Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak's popular picture book that was first published in 1968, is to have a film adaptation released in cinemas later this year.

Spike Jonze's production, to be his first release in six years, has had its troubles. Rumours of early test screenings, reported it to be too scary for small children. Jonze also had to change unconvincing costume and animatronic monsters to CGI ones.

The tale of a tear-away young boy was originally fewer than 40 pages long in a picture book so it'll be interesting to see how this is adapted to a feature length movie. I suspect there'll be quite a comprehensive back story told to explain the behaviour of the problem child that is the lead character.

The expected release date for Where the Wild Things Are is 16 October 2009 in the USA.
