Animation house Vinton Studios has purchased film rights to Neil Gaiman’s Hugo Award-winning children’s book Coraline as a helming vehicle for “Nightmare Before Christmas” director Henry Selick. Bill Mechanic’s Pandemonium Films will produce with Vinton.
Adapted by Selick, “Coraline” is the story of a young girl who discovers an alternate version of her life after walking through a secret door in her new home. HarperCollins published the book in 2002.
