Warner Bros. Finally Knows Where the Wild Things Are
Spike Jonze joint no longer TBA.Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are for weeks, but the (supposedly) troubled production just received a bit of good news.
Slashfilm reports that Warner Bros. has settled on a new release date for Wild Things -- the formerly "TBA 2009" picture, once slated for an '08 debut, will now reach theaters October 16, 2009.
As Slashfilm's Peter Sciretta notes, people have been quick to circulate bad buzz about Jonez's adaptation of the classic Maurice Sendak book; rumors have the studio doing everything from wringing its hands over negative test-screening feedback to demanding the entire film be reshot. Unfortunately for Jonze and crew, the studio's selection of a release date over a year and a half away will likely only encourage more speculation.
But hey, any publicity is good publicity...right?
