Selick Talks Zombie Comedy Paranorman
While out promoting Coraline, another upcoming 3D adventure I can’t wait for my eyeballs to digest, director Henry Selick talked to the JoBlo boys about another project he’s producing that’s of special interest to horror fans: a zombie comedy called Paranorman.
”It's kind've a funny zombie story,” he told the site. [Chris Butler] is doing a second draft of the screenplay. He has some artists working with him, designing the characters - that's the first order of business, to get that project up on its feet and going.”
Paranorman follows a 13-year-old kid who is the only chance for a small town to survive a zombie uprising. Not much else is known right now, only that it’s set up at the same animation studio responsible for Coraline, Laika, so chances are good it’ll be another animated film. Keep it here for updates as we get ‘em!
