During an interview on The Charlie Rose Show last Thursday, it was revealed that actress Catherine Keener is set to star in the upcoming bigscreen adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.

"I'm getting ready to work with him again [Spike Jonze]. 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."

Thanks to Better Than Fudge for the heads up.
