Tim Burton looks set to make another stop-motion animation picture, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Writer Seth Grahame-Smith told the trade that he’s got another script in the works with Burton planning to direct – called Night of the Living.
He said: “Night of the Living is an idea I have had around for years that I’m doing with Tim Burton.
“When we were shooting ‘Dark Shadows’ (above) last year I worked up the nerve to tell Tim about it because I always thought it would make a good movie. When I saw what he had done with ‘Frankweenie’ and ‘Corpse Bride’, it always struck me as a great idea for that form. I’m writing it at Warner’s Bros. for him (as a stop-motion monster movie).”
Grahame-Smith is both the original author and screenwriter of the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (produced by Burton) and drafted the Burton-directed Dark Shadows. He’s also attached to write the upcoming Beetlejuice sequel.
