One of the board members over at Dread Central pointed out some very cool info over on Neil Gaimanís official site regarding the film adaptation of his spooky kidís novel, Corlaine. The budget for the film is in place (around $50 to $70 million) thanks to Laika Entertainment (formerly Vinton Studios, who were responsible for such stop-motion creations as "The PJís" and the California Raisins) and the film is now officially in production.
Henry Selick, best known as the director of A Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach, is still signed on to direct the stop motion/CGI-animated project, and will feature music by none other than They Might Be Giants.
You can get an idea of what Selick can do with CGI by visiting Laikaís official site, which has a short animated film he did called "Moongirl" on it. It was enough to impress Neil Gaiman, so thatís gotta be good for something!
