Go, Neil, go!

More Neil Gaiman-related movie news:

Selick to Helm 'Coraline' for Vinton

Thu Sep 23,12:58 AM ET

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!
