We hope they don't fuck this up trying to give it the Where The Wild Things Are treatment! We love this book too much for it to suck!
Director Shawn Levy has reportedly signed on to direct a 'high concept' film adaptation of the Judith Viorst classic Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day!
For those of you who grew up under a rock, the book revolves around a sour puss kid who gets metaphorically shit on for about 45 pages.
We think our favorite little burst of rainbows and kittens Kristen Stewart should play Alexander!
This whole 'high concept' description worries us. Like we mentioned, it worked for Spike Jonze on Where The Wild Things Are, because well, he's a good filmmaker, but Shawn Levy took a massive dump on his version of the Pink Panther (twice!), and when Hilary Duff is the best part of your movie - Cheaper By The Dozen (twice!) - then you pretty much fail at life.
But we refuse to be like our beloved
Stewie Puss Puss Alexander and will remain cautiously optimistic about this film!
What do U think?? Will U go see Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?
