Selick's "Coraline" Welcomes McShane

Ian McShane, co-star of the upcoming “Scoop“, has joined the cast of the Henry Selick‘s animated film, “Coraline“. Focus Features has worldwide distribution rights to the LAIKA Entertainment project, adapted from Neil Gaiman‘s book of the same name. Already in the cast are Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, and the British comedy duo, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. The film is described as the story of “a young girl (voiced by Fanning) who unlocks a mysterious door in her new home, and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality.” Selick directed the stop-motion/live-action “James and the Giant Peach” and “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas,” as well as the animation sequences in Wes Anderson‘s “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.” [Eugene Hernandez]
