Laika Entertainment’s feature for next summer, ParaNorman, now has a pre-release poster. Due for release August 17, ParaNorman will be a stop-action film on the order of their last film, the highly acclaimed film adaption of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline.
In the comedy thriller, a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, moronic grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
This film will feature the voice of Kodi Smit-McPhee as Norman, with Casey Affleck, Tempestt Bledsoe, Jeff Garlin and John Goodman rounding out the voice cas.
