Henry Selick - best known for helming A Nightmare Before Christmas, James And The Giant Peach, and Coraline - is moving away from animated film to direct a live-action adaptation of Adam Gidwitz’s A Tale Dark & Grimm.
I remain completely enraptured by Adam Gidwitz’ marvelous book A Tale Dark & Grimm. It’s a hilarious, deeply inventive tale about survival in the world of fairytales and what it takes to forgive one’s parents. So it’s a huge thrill to be joining the team of Kamala Films and FilmNation as the director of the film based on it. Between the great material and a team that really gets it, I hope to make something really special that lasts. - Henry Selick
