Let the Wild Rumpus Begin

Here's the first production still released from Spoke Jonze's filming of Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak, courtesy of Movieweb. A well-chosen image, I must say. Evocative, exciting, and yet unrevealing.

Almost enough to overcome my dread based on the track record for feature-length movies made from picture books.

Wow! They're actually doing this! Last I'd heard about it, it was planned, but hadn't reached even pre-production.

It was one of my favorite non-Oz books when I was a kid.
