The Spike Jonze version of Where The Wild Things Are may be on the shelf right now (October 16, 2009 was the last release date I heard), but that’s not stopping Tony Kushner, Meryl Streep, James Gandolfini, Dave Eggers, Spike Jonze, Linda Emond, Catherine Keener, Stephen Greenblatt and others from putting on a celebration for Maurice Sendak‘s 80th Birthday tonight the 92nd St Y. As for the ill-fated movie version of Wild Things, Sendak recently told the NY Times that he was “thrilled” with Jonze’s film, (despite the studio’s widely reported misgivings).
