Henry Selick, who directed such stop-motion classics as Coraline, James and the Giant Peach and The Nightmare Before Christmas, just opened a brand new film studio in San Francisco with hopes of making “great, scary films for young `uns with a small, tight-knit crew who watch each other’s backs,” writes Cartoon Brew.
Joining Henry on Cinderbiter’s first production, Shademaker, will be veteran team members Eric Leighton and the celebrated production designer, Lou Romano (art director of Up, Ratatouille and Cars!)
Unfortunately, no other details are given, but it’s quite exciting to hear of such A-list names in animation creating “scarier” films for children. Yes! They need more nightmares.
