WB will do ‘Wild’ thing’

Warner Bros. has acquired “Where the Wild Things Are” out of turnaround from Universal. Adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic kid’s book, which Spike Jonze will direct from a script he and novelist Dave Eggers penned, is expected to get under way late in the year. Figuring out a way to turn the 338-word “Wild Things” story into a movie has been a long process, with multiple helmers and writers weighing in. Details of the Jonze-Eggers version have been closely held, but pic will be a live-action feature that will likely require a sizable CGI budget.
