It's been a while since last we heard anything regarding the stop-motion animated horror comedy Hell & Back, but whattaya know! Some new casting news has hit the interwebs, and yes, you can dig it right here!
It looks like things are progressing pretty nicely for the latest adaptation of the brilliant work of Mr. Charles Addams. In addition to being in old school stop-motion animation and directed by Tim Burton, the Illumination Films and Universal Pictures project has signed on Ed Wood screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski for the project.
A bit more concerning that latest adaptation of the brilliant work of Mr. Charles Addams. Looks like there's truly something special brewing in grandmama's cauldron! In an interview with ComingSoon.net producer Christopher Meledandri spoke a bit about the upcoming 3D animated version of The Addams Family we told you about a few months ago.
Oh, happy day! Around these parts we are big fans of Tim Burton's stellar stop-motion flicks The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride. However, we're even BIGGER fans of The Addams Family. Now comes news so ghoulishly good, I think I may have just peed a little while writing!
If you missed Coraline in theatres you really dropped the ball, man! It's a true feast for every one of our senses! Don't beat yourself up too bad though, because on July 21st Universal will be bringing this instant classic home in several different packages on DVD and Blu-ray! What to expect? We've got the skinny for ya!

The producers behind Coraline, Henry Selick’s stop-motion animated adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book, have provided 26 sites with 26 original pieces of art from the film in the form of the alphabet! Since we’re Dread Central, take a guess what letter we have for you?
In an example of two fates running concurrently to one another and finally meeting at the opportune time, both Darren G. Davis of Bluewater Productions and Marc Lougee of Handmade Heores realized they were working on projects under the Ray Harryhausen Presents banner, and immediately decided to join forces.
The first full trailer for Henry Selick’s Coraline is finally online thanks to Yahoo! Movies; all you have to do is hit the link to see just how amazing this film looks.
Coraline is a high-definition stop-motion animated feature – the first to be originally filmed in stereoscopic 3D – based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling book. A young girl (Dakota Fanning) walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better.
Henry Selick’s upcoming stop-motion animated version of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline is probably one of my most anticipated films of the next few years. We’ve been reporting on it for seemingly years now, so the fact that it’s finally being made is fantastic.
Who knew that a guy who built his fortune selling overpriced shoes to kids who could never truly feel accepted unless they had them was also a big geek? Phil Knight, the king of the Nike empire, took over Will Vinton Studios, most known for the California Raisins, and turned it into Laika a few years back, employing his son Travis as one of the lead animators.
On the right you can check out a very cool T-shirt design for Marc Lougee’s “The Pit and the Pendulum” (review), the first stop-motion Poe adaptation produced by Ray Harryhausen.
Director Henry Selick is bringing Neil Gaiman's Coraline (script review) to the big screen and in stop-motion! The Nightmare Before Christmas director is certainly showing that he can still create spooky and fluid animated features as we saw in the pic's new trailer. Coraline is looking to bring us something that should please horror fans in 2009.
