Just because a movie is a cartoon doesn’t mean it won’t be enjoyable for kids (think Monster House).
Having burst onto the filmmaking scene directing Gainsbourg and The Rabbi’s Cat, French comic-book artist turned helmer Joann Sfar is teaming with Euro mini-major StudioCanal for what looks set to be one of the most talked-about toon projects coming out of France, Little Vampire (not t be confused with the super lame 2000 pic starring Jonathan Lipnicki).
An English-language 3D animated feature, “Little Vampire” adapts Sfar’s best-selling graphic novel “Little Vampire Goes to School.”
“ ‘Little Vampire’ turns on tyke vampire, called Little Vampire, who lives in a house full of amiable but aged ghouls and monsters.
Missing the company of other children, Little Vampire helps out a human child, Michel, an orphan, who is behind with his homework, and they become friends.”
Those of you thinking this will only be for kids, think again: “‘Little Vampire’ should be very funny for adults, but also play for a broad range of kids,” StudioCanal chairman-CEO Olivier Courson said.
