Wild ThingsThe fine folks over at AICN sat down and had a chat with Spike Jonze and dug up some information I’ve been dying to hear. At the moment, it sounds like everything is as it should be in regards to the seemingly cursed adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.

The movie, which is based on a kid’s book, was being remade in a much more dark, more real, more adult fashion. This was likely because the biggest fans of the book are those who have grown up with it and are now all in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Because of this, the studios had a mini freak out and rumors swarmed about the $75 million project being scrapped and babied-up to appeal to a younger audience. But now it looks like they’ve regained their composure and are accepting what this movie is — and from all accounts thus far, this movie could be amazing.

Of course, by all of this, it does not mean that they’re going to add all sorts of crap and make the movie rated R for no reason. That’s not the case. The thing is, it was just much more dark than it was expected to be — like Harry Potter films have been recently, but maybe not even that dark. As mentioned in the interview, they have and are showing the movie to kids to gauge their reactions, so it will probably still be PG rated, maybe PG-13, who knows.
