Where The Wild Things Are Looking As Strong As Expected
Dave Eggers' adaptation of children's book Where The Wild Things Are is not expected until next year, but an apparent screen test circulating online is already drumming up more interest in the Spike Jonze film, if that's possible. In a deleted post about the clip, Entertainment Weekly writer Adam Vary wrote, "the emotional impact of this scene is... readily apparent," and mentioned "a peek at footage" he got last fall, in which "I was totally hooked from the first frame." (It's not clear why Vary's post was pulled, but it's worth noting that his magazine's parent company is producing the film.) Director Spencer Sloan is "more excited for the real deal than [I] ever thought possible. This is pitch perfect." All this just adds to the buzz around the film, whose script New York magazine called "really, really good" in the fall.
