02:11 pm - well well well.


First official still. New York Magazine has the script (and gives some interesting spoilers in discussing it.) Release date 2008.
Whatcha think?

That's what I was thinking. Is there really enough material there to turn into a feature length film? Then again, they made a movie of The Polar Express.

The Polar Express done fell off the tracks, landed in the Uncanny Valley, and blew up.

From the nymag article, they're expounding on Sendak's original theme, which you can craft a story around. They're also giving the Wild Things some neat things to do, too.

Naturally, I'm reminded of this.

I'd like to say I trust Eggers enough to avoid making Max cute. But I don't.

I am a tired old cynic.

Having Dave Eggers working on the script could make it fantastic, or could make it self-indulgent crap, or, more likely, both.

Either way, it will be a cornucopia of sorority party T-Shirt memes.

Huh, I didn't know Spike Jonze was on this. Could work.

AWESOME!

Are the Wild Things CG, or furries? :-)

Yes.

(You just KNOW the first furry-con after the movie will have some Very Interesting Costumes.)

I'm cautiously optimistic... which is pretty much my default attitude when my childhood is being marketed back at me.

I don't think I ever read it. I feel really left out.

It's a pity this isn't a movie version of the opera.

Not sure how I feel about it being a live-action. I like the drawings. It would have made a great animated short.
