It’s looking like reports that Where the Wild Things Are would be completely re-shot were premature. Collider has this report:
Spike is not getting replaced as director, Warner Bros. is not reshooting the entire movie, and we will see – at some point – [a] Spike Jonze [directed] “Where the Wild Things Are.” I’ve been told that the movie is doing reshoots and that they’ll be done here in the Los Angeles area. I’ve also been told that Spike is directing them and they’re mostly being done to fix the animation of the Wild Things and to address a few problems with the script. Basically, all the usual stuff that comes up when you make a movie.
So there you have it. Rest easy, spaz. But wait! The same source has an update:
I can’t speak for what happens in the future, but when I wrote the story below it appeared to be 100% accurate based on information from more than one credible source. All I can say is that after a few phone calls tonight from other close sources to the production, I’m less optimistic about what I originally wrote. Take that as you will.
So uh, basically we’re back to no one really knowing anything. Anyway, I prefer to know things only in the biblical sense. And by “things” I mean “really drunk chicks.”
