Hey! Did you hear? Spike Jonez, director of Being John Malkovich, made a movie based on the classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are. And it looks amazing.


And hey! Did you hear? They're making a video game based on Where the Wild Things Are. And it looks... We don't know how it looks. All we know is that game developer Amaze Entertainment announced the title on its website embedded in its corporate profiles:

...At Amaze, Jeff has overseen technical design and architecture for all recent console projects including Shrek the Third, Where the Wild Things Are and two unannounced titles.

...Randy joined Amaze entertainment in 2000 and has worked on best-selling and high profile titles such as Lego Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, The Chronicle of Narnia, Robots, Lemony Snicket, The Sims and Harry Potter, Shrek the Third, and Where The Wild Things Are, which is due out in Fall 2009.

...In his seven years at Amaze Entertainment, Alex has produced such high-profile licensed titles as Cartoon Network's Samurai Jack: Shadow of Aku, Lord of the Rings: Tactics, Call of Duty: Roads to Victory, the forthcoming Where The Wild Things Are, and an unannounced Disney Wii-exclusive due out this fall.

And it looks like it's dated — fall 2009 — to coincide with the film's October release. So, please don't suck, m'kay? OR ELSE.

Judging from other people's comments here, I feel like I'm the only one who's never heard of this book. I had to google it just to see what it was about. :(
