Screenwriters tell a Little White Lie for Laika Entertainment

With the success of its stop motion-animated film Coraline, Laika Entertainment has been adding feature films to its production slate, and now we can add one more to the list.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Chris McCoy and Jan Pinkava will be writing Little White Lie for the animation house under Pinkava’s direction (he also directed the Oscar-winning short film Geri’s Game).

McCoy (who also has a story credit for Ratatouille) is credited with the original story, but neither THR nor Empire magazine seem to know what the story’s about—which makes me wonder if Laika’s withholding information just to get people more interested in finding out more about the movie and the story. If so, well… they’ve got me hooked.

Other films on Laika’s slate include an adaptation of Alan Snow’s Here Be Monsters! and Paranorman which features a young teenager who has to defend his small town from a zombie attack.
