"Wild Things" Find Their Voice

by | May 4, 2006 | Comments

Not too long ago we shared the news that Maurice Sendak‘s brilliant "Where the Wild Things Are" would be making the leap to the big screen — with the help of the enjoyably eccentric Spike Jonze. And now it seems we have a voice cast!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "A diverse group of vocal talents, including Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Michael Berry Jr., Paul Dano, Tom Noonan, Catherine O’Hara, Forest Whitaker and Michelle Williams, has been recruited to provide the voices of the titular characters in writer-director Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book "Where the Wild Things Are."

The film, which Warner Bros. Pictures is producing in association with Legendary Pictures, will combine voice performances, live-action puppetry and computer animation to dramatize the adventures of Max, a rebellious young boy who runs away from home after a fight with his mother and finds himself in a forest where the wild things roam."
