Anyway, this is just a quick post to link to an IGN interview with Henry Selick, in which he talks about the film he's making of Coraline (The official site is http://www.laika.com/entertainment/ and click on projects and then Coraline). I got a nice note from him while I was on tour, promising to get me Coraline film stuff soon, which I am very much looking forward to seeing, and will either talk about what he sends on this blog or not talk about it, depending on what Henry asks.
One of the things I like best about Henry is his honesty. He's not very good at doing the Hollywood things of telling people what he thinks they want to hear, and says what he thinks instead. This is probably one reason why he's now making movies in Portland rather than in Hollywood. So he's probably much too honest here ("I certainly hope they don't put it out in the middle of the summer blockbuster season. We'll get creamed.") but more power to him... http://movies.ign.com/articles/741/741162p1.html is the interview.
