LAIKA Steps In To Save Henry Selick’s ‘Graveyard Book’

    Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas director Henry Selick may have found a home for his cancelled stop-motion adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.

    Selick had a deal with Disney to produce the film, but the studio cancelled production back in Auguster after decided the tone was too dark and production was moving too slowly. The cancellation allowed Selick to shop the project to other studios and it appears that LAIKA, the studio behind Coraline and this summer’s ParaNorman, may be coming to the rescue.

    Thompson on Hollywood broke the news, noting that Selick will still be working out of his own Cinderbriter studio in San Francisco. Plot details are slim, other than a rumor that it will be about two brothers.
