When in Doubt, Go to Portland

Perhaps Mr. Selick is finding light at the end of the tunnel.

Henry Selick is in discussions with Laika to finance his stop-motion feature recently shut down by Disney (with newly appointed chairman Alan Horn deciding to take a $50 million write off, reportedly because the tone was too dark and the production was moving far too slowly).

But obviously if they can work it out, this would be a win-win for Selick and Laika.

I'm pulling for Laika and Henry to make this work. We need a dark picture. And there was a talented bunch of stop-motion animators on the shuttered feature that should be working. Full time.
