Wild Things

Thanks to Maud for linking to this scoop:

The long road to make Sendak’s 1964 classic “Where the Wild Things Are” into a movie is on a new and decidedly hip track. Sendak says he and director Spike Jonze (“Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation”) are talking about bringing the book to the screen for Universal, with a screenplay by Dave Eggers (“Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius,” “You Shall Know Our Velocity”).

Sounds like good fun to me.
