As the big screen adaption of Where the Wild Things Are continues to face trouble, The Los Angeles Times spoke to Warner Brothers President Alan Horn to go on the record about the troubled project, specifically director Spike Jonze's efforts to make it work.
"We've given him more money and, even more importantly, more time for him to work on the film," Horn told the newspaper.
"We'd like to find a common ground that represents Spike's vision, but still offers a film that really delivers for a broad-based audience. We obviously still have a challenge on our hands. But I wouldn't call it a problem, simply a challenge. No one wants to turn this into a bland, sanitized studio movie. This is a very special piece of material and we're just trying to get it right."
Where the Wild Things Are, of course, is based on the wildly popular children's book by Maurice Sendak.
