    Selick is great with the use of shadows, both real and rotoscoped. I am so down for this.

    I get excited whenever I hear Selick is doing something new. NMBC is my favorite movie, and I loved Coraline. Can't wait to see where this goes.

    I also love James and the Giant Peach.

    Monkeybone though I haven't seen since I was a kid. I remember hating it though.

    I always wondered what happened between Seleck and Laika, the studio behind Coraline and ParaNorman.

    Did something happen? I just figured selleck was taking a break, he usually has a bit of a gap between his movies.

    There was a conflict between the two parties.

    Yeah I never heard what exactly happened but Sellick left to go start his own company under the Disney umbrella, but that fell through too.

    The cast listing and terrific, and like the posters above, I will see anything Selick creates.

    He's making it now, with his own studio. It's to be distributed in Europe by some outfit called K5 International.

    It's not listed on their website anymore though? And the most recent information about the film dates back to last February...

    He's making a live action film also. Maybe Shadow King's been (hopefully just) pushed back.

    Shadow King is going down, in what I call, the super duper indie route. More indie than what we think of indie. Once he's done with The Shadow King, he'll have to find a distributor through festivals like Sundance, Tornoto, etc.

    So realistically, it's not going to be out for a long while, if at all?
