Where the Wild Things Are

Wow! I haven't been this excited about a movie release in...
...well I don't even remember.

Almost everyone my age remembers this book from when we were little and I'm sure most would agree that it's one of the best childrens books ever.

So, normally I would be skeptical about the ability of Hollywood to adapt it to film. Luckily this project, which has been nine years in the making, will be directed by Spike Jonze. The screenplay was co-written by Jonze and celebrated novelist Dave Eggers. The film features music from Arcade Fire and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and will be released this fall.

Can't wait!
