The much delayed film adaptation of bestselling children's author (and just recently openly gay genius) Maurice Sedak Where the Wild Things are is finally getting an October release date a full two years after that first test screening that sent one child out crying and executives scrambling. Visionary director Spike Jonez (Being John Malcovich, Adaptation) is at the helm of what was being called an adult adaptation of a kids classic. I'm hoping despite tons of re-shoots and delays that the film is every bit as wonderful as the still images make it out to be. A dark and fantastical rendering of our childhood favorite.
