Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers' "Where The Wild Things Are" Shelved?

1st\NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

"Where The Wild Things Are" is the newest film from Academy Award nominated director Spike Jonze (Being John Malcovich, Adaptation). The film is based on Maurice Sendak's classic children's book, and was adapted for the screen by Spike Jonze and writer Dave Eggers (Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, You Shall Know Our Velocity!).

Reports have recently emerged that Warner Bros. may be considering an entire re-shoot of the film, and perhaps without Jonze. Apparently, the version that Jonze turned in was a more mature, adult adaptation than Warner Bros. had originally anticipated, and they've pushed the release date WAY back. (The films release was originally set for May 2008, and it's now set for October 2009.) -- Save "Where The Wild Things Are"
