Where the Wild Things Are

I’m breaking into movie week with a little bit of movie news – a test clip from the movie adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are. The movie will be directed by Spike Jonez, and the screenplay was written by Jonez and Dave Eggers.

It’s a little rough right now (in fact, these aren’t even the actual actors) but I love the quiet feeling of the movie. If everything is like this, I’ll be happy. Very happy.

All the information I’ve found on the movie adaptation is located at wikipedia:

The movie will combine live action, suitmation, animatronics and CGI. The film’s release has been pushed back to 2009, for soundtrack collaboration with music composer Carter Burwell.

Rumors also surfaced that lead singer for the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O, will also be playing a role in the films’ soundtrack but details surrounding her involvement have been undetermined as of this time.

Burwell is responsible for the beautiful soundtrack to Fargo. And this is officially the first time I’ve ever heard of the word “suitmation.”

Robots ARE the best.
