Also coming up in 2009 is Spike Jonze's long awaited adaption of Maurice Sendak's classic children's tale "Where The Wild Things Are " starring child actor Max Records.
Jonze has been in production since 2006 and admits ''none of it was easy.'' Among the challenges: evoking the rich interior life of a precocious child (newcomer Max Records, left). ''The movie rests on Max's performance,'' says Jonze. ''It's all about taking this 9-year-old seriously as a person.''
