Like Devin, I have no experience with Neil Gaiman’s Coraline. However, the fellas over at Cineblog do apparently, as they’ve posted the first look at the one-sheet for Henry Selick’s upcoming 3D adaptation. The film is being shot stereroscopically (yeah, I had to look that one up too) and tells the story of a little girl who discovers a door in her new home that leads to a parallel, fantastical world.
Henry Selick and Mike Cachuela are giving the story Selick’s distinctive stop-motion look, bolstered by the steroscopy thing. It stars Dakota Fanning, hoping for any gig that Abigail Breslin doesn’t snatch away from her, as Coraline, Teri Hatcher as her mother, and John Hodgman, Ian McShane, Keith David and Jennifer Saunders.
It’s being distributed by Focus Features and premiere February 6, 2009.
Thanks to Rui for the tip.
