Spike Jonze' Where the Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are was one of my favorite books as a kid. My little brother was named after the book's protagonist, Max. My favorite movie is Adaptation, directed by Spike Jonze. One of my top three favorite books is A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers.

Now, in what may turn out to be the best collaboration since yeast and sugar, Dave Eggers and Spike Jonze have written a screenplay based on the children's book to be directed by Jonze. The movie is due out in October of this year. If only they could incorporate fish tacos somehow I could have all of my favorite things at once!
