It is rumored to be a combination of live-action, puppetry and CG animation used to tell the tale of a little boy named Max who is sent to bed without dinner and runs away to an island full of the titular monsters. Now check out this roster…Tom Hanks is producing for his Playtone Pictures, with Spike Jonze directing!Jonze will cowrite the adaptation with PETER PAN scribe Michael Goldenberg and Novelist wunderkind Dave Eggers!!!The cast will include Catherine Keener as Max’s mom, Benicio Del Toro, Forest Whittaker, Catherine O’Hara, Paul Dano, Tom Noonan and Michael Berry Jr.I am flabbergasted, flibbeldigibbited and altogether stunned.I am a 32 year-old man, married with children, and I am practically peeing my pants with excitement at the thought of seeing this on the screen!
