Where the Wild Things Are

'Where the Wild Things Are'

Spike Jonze's struggles in bringing "Where the Wild Things Are" to the big screen have been well-documented, but the film is finally coming this fall.

Maurice Sendak's book was first written in 1963 and tells the story of Max, a young boy who's punished for "making mischief." Sent to bed without supper, Max instead escapes into a dark forest and makes his way to the land of the Wild Things.
