There were a few reasons why we did a hop and a leap into bed out of fear that something under the bed would eat us when we were five. Namely: monsters. And not amiable, cuddly creatures like Monster Inc.'s Sulley. We're talking jaundiced, googly-eyed monsters like in Maurice Sendak's classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are.

With a gigantic budget of a speculated $80 million, the fiercely protective Sendak is enthused about the movie adaptation by Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers. The Daily Swarm led us to a report that Jonze's ex-flame and Yeah Yeah Yeahs doyenne Karen O's performance on the soundtrack got her a small mention in the VF Movies Rock issue, which isn't available online for our scrutiny. There's no mention of how many songs she's performing for the film, either.

Starring Forest Whitaker, Michelle Williams and Catherine O'Hara, the film is now in post-production and due next October.
