I don't know about you, but I'm plenty sick of Hollywood ruining important things from my childhood.
However, If a studio head were to approach me and ask, "John, under what circumstances would it be acceptable to make a movie adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are?" my response would be close to, "Spike Jonze should direct it, and co-write the script with Dave Eggers. Also, the first press photo for the film should look like the above picture."
New York magazine has seen the Eggers-Jonze screenplay and says, "it's really, really good."
