Where The Wild Things Are
USA Today has new bunch of 12 pics from Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are – and they look stunningly faithful to the book.

Disney’s Stoneheart
According to The Hollywood Reporter Disney and ImageMovers (a company that can name Robert Zemeckis as one of its prime movers) are in negotiations for the film rights to The Stoneheart Trilogy, a young-adult fantasy book series by Charlie Fletcher. The story concerns a 12-year-old London boy who enters an alternate world of living statues. The film will be created using performance capture (which, of course, Zemeckis has pioneered in such films as Polar Express and Beowulf) as will tow other ImageMovers projects currently in production: Mars Needs Moms, directed by Simon (The Time Machine) Wells and an adaptation of Eoin Colfer's Airman for Gil ("Monster House").

24 Director For Doctor Who?
Although if this were a Wiki entry there'd be a dirty great "Citation Needed" tag next to it, we thought we'd point this out. Comic Book Resources has been told that the director of the big screen Lost In Space, Stephen Hopkins, will be calling the shots on Matt Smith's first full episode of Doctor Who. If that doesn’t exactly fill you with glee (Blawp Alert! Blawp Alert!) then you might be happier knowing that he's the guy who also defined the visual style of 24 in its first season. Although this has to be filed firmly under rumour at the minute, Hopkins is British and, hey, if you were going to make up a so-and-so to direct Who bit of gossip, wouldn't you pick someone less obscure? Still, let's wait and see...

Ghost Of A Chance Fort Singer
Bryan Singer may be in line to direct a big screen adaptation of the comic Freedom Formula: Ghost of the Wasteland, according to Variety . New Regency has acquired the rights to the story about a future in which in which fighter jets have been replaced by genetically engineered pilots who battle in racing exo-suits. Edmund Shern, who runs Storm Lion, the Radical-owned imprint that published it, created the comicbook. Shern will be associate producer.
