Better Than Fudge reports that Catherine Keener revealed on Thursday's The Charlie Rose Show that she will star in Warner Bros. Pictures' bigscreen Where the Wild Things adaptation:
"I'm getting ready to work with [Spike Jonze] again. He's doing 'Where the Wild Things Are'. He's doing it in New Zealand. I'm playing the mom looking for Max. Then there will be six actors or so performing the roles of the monsters, the wild things. And then Henson's company is making puppets."
The film is an adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's book, in which Max is sent to bed without supper and imagines sailing away to the land of Wild Things, where he is made king.
Keener previously starred in director Jonze's Being John Malkovich. She has starred recently in Friends with Money, Capote, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Interpreter and The Ballad of Jack and Rose.
