The wildly successful children’s story Where The Wild Things Are is finally being re-incarnated on the big screen this fall. Despite the amount of years that have passed since I’ve read the book, I still haven’t forgotten how cool Max was and his freaky monster friends. From all the hype online, especially the buzz today about a newly released movie poster, it seems Max is set for stardom.
Maurice Sendak authored Where The Wild Things Are in 1963, and although other movies have been in the works before, Spike Jones is the director to make it happen this time. An interesting tidbit is that Sendak didn’t intend to write a book about monsters, but switched to them when he discovered that he could not draw horses.
