where the wild things are

In Maurice Sendak news, the adaptation of his magical book Where the Wild Things Are is taking shape, with Catherine Keener as Max's mom in the first live-action casting decision. Voices will feature Benicio del Toro and Michelle Williams, among others.

Sendak is also at work with Matthew Reinhart to create a new book inspired by monsters from the 1930s (and Sendak's play It's Alive) titled Mommy? You can see some sketches here.
