Coraline is Coming
As a HUGE Neil Gaiman fan, I thought I’d share this trailer for the upcoming stop motion animation film, “CORALINE” set for release on February 6, 2009.
Written/directed by THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS director, Henry Selick, CORALINE is an adaptation of a children’s book by Neil Gaiman. The film, produced by Focus Features, will feature a voice cast including Dakota Fanning (as Coraline), Ian McShane and Terry Hatcher.
Here is the synopsis (thanks to IMDB):
A young girl (Fanning) walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when her adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit parents (including Other Mother [Hatcher]) try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home – and save her family.
Rumor has it that THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS will be contributing music for the film….which would be AMAZING.
Stay tuned for more info as it is released!
