Why Sony Pictures Animation Still Needs a Big Hit – and Where It Might Come From

15 June 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annecy, France — Having sprinted to deliver toon movies this year in near record time, Sony Pictures Animation has a brace of new animated feature originals on deck for potential 2020/21 release, Kristine Belson, Sony Pictures Animation president announced at France’s Annecy Festival Thursday night, delivering a masterclass on Re-Shaping Sony Pictures Animation.

Four of the five projects which Belson went on to talk about in some detail, without implying they will be Spa’s only releases over 2020/21, are from first-time directors.

In contrast, Spa looks set not to release any movie at all in 2019, she added.

That may seem like an original move by a new Hollywood animation studio head, but it’s one way of confronting Spa’s major challenge. Producing animated features since 2006’s “Open Season,” Sony Pictures Animation has still to fire up a “Despicable Me” size franchise which can, as Belson out, provide a transformational moment, »

13 June 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Henry Selick hasn’t released a feature film since “Coraline” debuted in 2009. While he’s been developing multiple film projects for a while, including the long-delayed “The Shadow King,” it appears new material from Selick will finally be coming soon as the animator makes a move to television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Selick will direct the pilot and potentially more episodes of “Little Nightmares,” from executive producers Anthony and Joe Russo.

Terrifying indie darling Little Nightmares is being adapted for TV, with Henry Selick directing

13 June 2017 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, that didn’t take long! Little Nightmares officially released for PS4, XBox One, and PC back in April to positive reviews, and already the title is being adapted into a television series. The game will be adapted by Joe and Anthony Russo, who are the minds behind the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War; the two will serve as executive producers for the series.

The project is a result of production company DJ2 Entertainment noticing the game prior to its release, and partnering with Bandai Namco while the game was in development. The Russo brothers eventually won out on a bidding war for the rights to adapt the title.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pilot episode will be directed by none other than The Nightmare Before Christmas director Henry Selick. At this time, Selick is only attached to the pilot episode, but the article does state that there is a »

‘Little Nightmares’ TV Series in the Works with the Russo Brothers and Henry Selick

12 June 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

What do a horror/puzzle video game, the directors of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, and the writer/director of the Oscar-nominated Coraline and The Nightmare before Christmas all have in common? Apparently they're all coming together for a TV series based on the hit Tarsier Studios game, Little Nightmares. That's a pretty crazy combination of talent for a number of reasons, namely that Joe and Anthony Russo are insanely busy with their Marvel responsibilities over the next couple of years and that Henry Selick has not written, directed, or produced a major project in nearly a … »

Neil Gaiman ranks among the most celebrated storytellers of our time. A gifted writer with a penchant for crafting odd tales with mythological underpinnings, he’s written novels, short story collections and even comics that speak to the most curious, most human parts of ourselves. It’s difficult to pick a favorite amongst his many brilliant works, but most regard his groundbreaking American Gods to be his greatest achievement as a writer.

Produced by Brian Fuller, the series will follow protagonist Shadow Moon as he navigates a world populated by beings he doesn’t yet understand. Fresh out of »

‘Transformers’ Spinoff ‘Bumblebee’ Finds Director in ‘Kubo and the Two Strings’ Helmer

2 March 2017 5:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Travis Knight is moving on from stop animation to try his hand at live action as the Laika CEO has been tapped to direct the “Transformers” spinoff “Bumblebee.”

The movie would mark his live-action directorial debut after helming the Oscar-nominated “Kubo and the Two Strings” for Laika last year. Paramount was clearly eyeing someone with an animated background as execs also met with “Lego Batman” director Chris McKay. The studio had no comment.

While plot details are still unknown, the story will focus on the popular character who has appeared in all of Michael Bay’s “Transformers” films.

Travis Knight Will Direct Transformers Spinoff Bumblebee

2 March 2017 5:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether you like it or not, the Transformers franchise is going to be around for a while. With The Last Knight arriving in theaters this summer to continue the main series, and several more sequels planned after that, those robots in disguise aren’t going anywhere. Not only that, but we also have a spinoff to look forward to (?) now, as it was announced a while back that Bumblebee would be receiving his own film.

The screenplay for the project comes from Christina Hodson, with Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg on board to produce. Casting hasn’t been announced just yet, but we do now have a director in place, and that’ll be Travis Knight, who recently made his feature film debut on Kubo and the Two Strings and is the CEO of Laika, the company responsible for efforts like Coraline and ParaNorman.

‘Kubo and the Two Strings’: 3D Printer Key to Puppetry

16 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When the Oscar nominations were announced on Jan. 24, some may have been surprised to find “Kubo and the Two Strings” among the visual-effects nominees. But it wasn’t a shock to those who had carefully looked at the work Oregon-based Laika had done for its latest release.

Long known as a technological and artistic pioneer for its combination of traditional stop motion and puppeteering with CG, the studio was already home to a team that pushed boundaries with such previous stop-motion releases as “Coraline.”

One member of the staff, Brian McLean, was also recognized with a Sci-Tech Award by the Academy just last year for his work in rapid prototyping.

The last time an animated film was nominated in the vfx category was 1993’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Since then, the rise of Laika has advanced stop motion in all kinds of ways.
