Where The Wild Things Are Pushed Back - Again
Where The Wild Things Are, the upcoming film directed by Spike Jonze (Adaptation) and based off the book that we all read as kids, has been completely removed from Warner Brothers' lineup after being recently pushed back to a 2009 release.
The movie, much of which was shot in Australia in 2006 (!), has been getting crazy amounts of coverage over the past few years, with test screenings earning it positive buzz and scaring children in the theater at the same time. Obviously Warner Brothers doesn't want kids running for the exits when they watch a movie, so they've shelved the project to give Jonze more time (and money) to get it right. Will this thing ever get released?
You can read a short, concise update about the progress of the movie here. It's a pretty good piece.
