Folks far and wide are eagerly awaiting the film adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic Where the Wild Things Are, which, if you live under a rock, is being directed by Spike Jonze. (He also wrote the adaptation with Dave Eggers, so here's hoping Jonze could keep the twee to a minimum.) The photos and trailer are so fantastic, I could cry. What's the rumpus, you say?

Last year Kotaku reported a rumor that Brash Entertainment would be developing a video game based on the film. Brash aimed to make great video games based on movie licenses, but instead ended up making games like Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Interestingly enough, one of the cofounders of Brash, Thomas Tull, is also the head of Legendary Pictures, one of the production companies behind Wild Things. However, Tull quit and Brash folded. Variety reported, "Tull is believed to have been disappointed with the quality of Brash's games, as well as the company's strategic direction." This left many titles in the lurch, including Wild Things.

So, what now? Sounds like Amaze Entertainment will be taking over, as per the bio of Michael Waite, Studio Head / Executive Producer, which some blogger stumbled upon.

"Michael's contributions include Electronic Arts' best-selling Need for Speed and Harry Potter series, and other top tier franchises including titles such as Call of Duty: Roads to Victory,Shrek the Third,Lord of the Rings: Tactics, Lemony Snicket's: A Series of Unfortunate Events, as well as two titles due out later this year: Where The Wild Things Are on all console platforms and Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for PSP."

But! Amaze is still looking for a publisher for Wild Things. With Warner Bros. talking big about its interest in technology, will they be the ones to snap it up? And more importantly, will it be any good?!
