Selick to Helm 'Coraline' for Vinton

Animation powerhouse Vinton Studios has acquired the film rights to Neil Gaiman's Hugo Award-winning, best-selling children's book "Coraline."
Henry Selick ("The Nightmare Before Christmas") adapted the book and will direct.
Bill Mechanic and his Pandemonium Films will co-produce with Vinton Studios. The acquisition is Vinton's latest step from creating award-winning shorts and commercials to becoming a developer of animated films.
Very exciting stuff, I think. My affection for Coraline is well-known. I hope the studio can at least do it some justice!
