Since there isn’t any big casting news today, we are driving a touch off the path to give you more info on another of this year’s most anticipated movies. Spike Jonze, director for Where The Wild Things Are is blogging regularly with updates, insight and info on the process of “Things” at his site “We Love You So.” He covers a multitude of topics on the blog as it is not solely related to the October film. He introduces you with the following:
In October 2009 Spike Jonze’s feature film rendition of Maurice Sendak’s classic story Where The Wild Things Are will hit movie theaters worldwide.
The film represents years of work from hundreds of different artists, writers, photographers, musicians, actors, and creators of all degrees.
This place has been established to help shed some light on many of the small influences that have converged to make this massive project a reality.
I like the film influences (Ratcatcher!) and there is a good little archive of stuff already, so go back and see what has been posted. Also, there is this cool little video where Jonze scares what is presumably his kid with one of the “Wild Things” masks on. I would have been fired up to see that when I was his age! Some kids are such pussies. Enjoy!
