Focus Features and LAIKA, the companies responsible for Henry Selick’s stop-motion animated Coraline, may have the answer with their upcoming movie ParaNorman, a family film starring a young protagonist named Norman trying to navigate the world of the supernatural with witches, ghosts and zombies all around him.
A few months back, ComingSoon.net and ShockTillYouDrop.com had a chance to visit LAIKA’s production studios just outside Portland, Oregon and get a taste of their latest project, a horror-inspired comedy based on an original idea by writer/director Chris Butler, who was joined by director Sam Fell (Flushed Away, The Tale of Despereaux).
