150 people are officially out of a job today as Disney has pulled the plug on director Henry Selick's latest stop-motion film. The untitled project has been in production for a year and was scheduled for an October 2013 release. What's up with that, Disney?
Sometimes, a filmmaker and an author are a match made in heaven. Case in point: Henry Selick and Neil Gaiman. Although Selick's stop-motion adaptation of Gaiman's 'Coraline' may not have followed the book beat-for-beat, it perfectly captured the strange, nightmarish whimsy that is inherent in so much of the author's work. Now, Selick will take on Gaiman yet again, this time with an adaptation of 'The Graveyard Book.'
