Spike Jonze Interview

Moriarty over at Ain’t It Cool News recently posted a great interview with Spike Jonze. If you are half as excited for Where The Wild Things Are as I am you need to read this interview! Now someone just needs to turn Strega Nona into a movie and my life will be complete (I love kids books if you haven’t noticed).

  • This is easily my most anticipated movie… ever. Well except He-Man Masters of the Universe.

  • Spike Jones is a genius.
    I am so glad he is doing this adaptation.

  • The only thing about this movie that has me even MORE excites is the fact that Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is doing the soundtrack. SHIT YES. i love their music. i love this book, i love spike jonze and i can’t WAIT to see this.

    Yo Matt, there’s already a He-Man movie starring Dolph Lundgren! HAHA.. probably not what u expected tho… Oh so horrible, yet oh soo FUNNY…

  • Yah, that’s the one I was talking about, haha. When I was a kid that was so huge! A He-Man movie…. with Dolph Lundgren!!! Didn’t really last too long once I saw the movie.

  • Shinead

    SERIOUSLY?! I’m all over it!

  • xpez

    I hope its not lame.

    Looks kind of like an eighties FX style.

    Hopefully…it will work.
