Selick’s Shadow King is Greenlighted

BERLIN -- Several months after Disney halted its plans for the animated feature, The Shadow King, writer/director Henry Selick is going ahead with the project. Selick, whose credits include the Oscar-nominated Coraline and James and the Giant Peach, is well into pre-production on The Shadow King, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, which will be produced by Josh Penn (Beasts of the Southern Wild).

German/U.K. sales and production group K5 International is handling world sales on the project and will pitch it to buyers starting at the European Film Market in Berlin this week.

The story of The Shadow King follows Hap, a nine-year-old orphan in New York with fantastically long fingers, which he tries to hide from the rest of the world. When a living shadow girl shows him how he can use his hands to make his hand-shadows come to life, Hap's fingers become fantastic weapons in a shadow-war against a monster bent on killing Hap's brother Richard and destroying New York itself.

Sounds like cool news (for a change). What studio is producing it?
