Save \"Where The Wild Things Are\"

\"Where The Wild Things Are\" is the newest film from Academy Award nominated director Spike Jonze (Being John Malcovich, Adaptation). The film is based on Maurice Sendak\'s classic children\'s book, and was adapted for the screen by Spike Jonze and writer Dave Eggers (Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, You Shall Know Our Velocity!). Reports have recently emerged that Warner Bros. may be considering an entire re-shoot of the film, and perhaps without Jonze. Apparently, the version that Jonze turned in was a more mature, adult adaptation than Warner Bros. had originally anticipated, and they\'ve pushed the release date WAY back. (The films release was originally set for May 2008, and it\'s now set for October 2009.) This is EXTREMELY upsetting to fans all over the world. Jonze is a very unique and original artist, and people of all ages have been looking forward to this film for the better part of a decade. Maurice Sendak worked on the film as a consultant, and is apparently very pleased, and fully supports Jonze\'s vision. As of now, there have been no official statements from Warner Bros. or Jonze about the situation, but here\'s to hoping that if it\'s true, then we have something to say about it. Help keep artistic integrity alive. Let\'s save this film from the corporate money machine, and let one of the most original, inventive, and creative filmmakers out there have his vision protected.

    4 years ago Comments: I really like the film of Where The Wild Things Are, cause I think that Spike Jonze, Maurice Sendak, Dave Eggers, Tom Hanks, Max Records, Catherine Keener, James Gandolfini and many more did wonderful jobs on this film. This movie became the number 1 movie of the box-office since last year, cause it does look similar to the book that Maurice Sendak had written many years ago. I do like the scenes that has to do with Carol (Gandolfini) and Max (Records) cause their bond/friendship keeps on growing, and they're like father and son figures to each other, including the tokens of affection that they both made for each other, which they are willing to remind each other of the friendship and love that they both still had together. I am hoping that there will be a sequel to this movie, cause I want to know on what will happen to Max, if he's going to go back to the island of the Wild Things, and what will happen to Carol, if he's going to apologize to Max, and want to see Max again. And maybe bring back the same voice actors as the voices of the Wild Things, like Carol, KW, Ira, Judith, Alexander, Douglas and the Bull, and maybe bring back Max Records and Catherine Keener as well. But I did notice is, Maurice Sendak has never written a sequel to his book "Where The Wild Things Are", but for the movie studios, they said there MIGHT be a sequel. And I hope we'll get to see the preview of the sequel of Where The Wild Things Are someday very soon, I hope. The Wild Things suits are amazing and they all look just like the ones from the book, and maybe for a sequel... I will like to see Carol and KW still be together as a wonderful couple, maybe have a baby together, and the memory of Max will hit Carol's mind, and caused Carol to sneak out of the fort, and build a boat that he could take ALL Wild Things with him to go to Max's island and see Max, and be part of his life and his human family, and maybe of course lots of scenes with Carol and Max, so their friendship/bond will still keep on growing for each other. And maybe of course let the Bull talk, and maybe a scene or two with the Bull and Max's older sister name Claire, and maybe a few scenes with Carol and Max's mother, so they could get to know each other a lot better and be a one BIG happy family with the Wild Things, along with Max. I just thought on what will be nice for a sequel, and I hope I didn't rush Spike Jonze or Maurice Sendak into things, I was only trying to support this movie, so Spike Jonze could do anything to save THE WILD THINGS, so maybe he could think on what to do for a sequel of "WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE." Thank you for your honesty, including Spike Jonze and Maurice Sendak for making WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE movie to become the number 1 of the box-office, along with Max Records and James Gandolfini of becoming good friends for this wonderful film called WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE.
