Wild Things are coming...

One of my favorite childhood books "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak is coming to the big screen! Spike Jonze (director of Being John Malcovich and Adaptaton) is directing this live-action adaptation for the big screen - coming out in the fall.

Can't wait! Look at the Monster costume! (Why isn't the Jim Hensen Company doing this?!)
With this exciting news, I end this post is a photo from 2005. Tributes to Where the Wild Things Are - paper-mache puppets made by my UBC FAME teaching classmates and I!

Hmm....interesting. Y'know, I seem to vaguely recall reading this book too....Anywho, enjoy your film!

Yeah, what the heck happened to the Jim Hensen Company? I haven't seen their names on a movie in a long time.

The book is great, one of my all time favs! Apperently, the Jim Henson Co was divided into two companies: the Muppet Studio and the Jim Henson Creature Shop. Disney owns the Muppets, and the Creature shop still does movies (see Mirrormask?)
