Get Wild Next Month!

12:27 AM

Maurice Sendak's classic and beloved, "Where the Wild Things Are"- is finally hitting the big screen courtesy of talented-uber director Spike Jonze October 16th.

I have a personal link with Sendak as I was lucky enough to work with him back in 1998 when Sony helped to create a live playscape to bring the book to life in Metreon (in SF, which has since sold out to Westfield).

Okay back to the film, not only has the excitement of seeing Jonze special flair for visual artistry (ala Bjork, REM, Beastie Boys) made my anticipation rise, but now Karen O of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs will be playing wordsmith on the whole soundtrack!!

Especially after seeing how naturally they fuse together their talents- just peep this vid. I expect their mischief to equate 2 movie-magic.  Hey that dood from the ad went to HS with me...
