After 15 years, pre-production is finally under way for a Hollywood version of Maurice Sendak's 1963 children's classic Where the Wild Things Are. Sendak, now 77, will serve as producer on the film, with Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) directing a screenplay he's co-written with Dave Eggers (A Heart-breaking Work of Staggering Genius). "I don't know what to make of it, exactly," Sendak is quoted as saying in The New York Times, (10/23/05) "but I am so for it. I am in love with it. If Spike and Dave do not do this movie, now, I would just as soon not see any version of it ever get made."
