Concourse Film Trade has acquired worldwide rights to the feature animation film My Haunted House, directed by Alex Williams, reports Variety.
The film sounds like a more suburban take on Hotel Transylvania, with a sprinkle of Monster House:
The story follows Charlie, a perfectly normal 14-year-old boy, who lives in a perfectly normal, ordinary town. He just happens to live in a haunted house with his strange and embarrassing supernatural family made up of Frankenstein, Count Dracula, mummies, and zombies.
Williams has animation credits on The Lion King as the animator for Scar, The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The producer in charge of animation is Bob Thompson, who previously worked for Lego and BBC.
My Haunted House is in pre-production and is produced by Tigon Entertainment (U.K.) in association with Liquid Media Group in Vancouver. Productivity Media Inc., which has a financing pact with Concourse Media, recently signed a three-year first-look deal with Liquid.
