'Wildwood' by Colin Meloy of The Decembrists optioned by 'Coraline' studio


Laika, the animation studio behind Coraline, has optioned Wildwood, the middle-grade fantasy novel by Decembrists lead singer Colin Meloy, Variety has announced. Wildwood centers on a girl named Prue McKneel, who is forced to leave the flannel-and-coffee-house world of Portland, Oregon, and enter the bordering “Impassable Wilderness” after her brother is kidnapped by a murder of crows (I never pass up an opportunity to use “murder” in that context).

While the studio has turned away from making sequels in the past, Laika is hoping to make the entire Wildwood Chronicles, although books 2 and 3 have not yet been published. The offbeat, stop-motion style of Coraline will likely be a great fit for Wildwood; Meloy said, “Hands down, there is no other movie studio in the world besides Laika that I would entrust Wildwood to.” While I’m looking forward to seeing Laika’s beautiful-creepy visuals, I have high expectations for the movie soundtrack.

    I have high hopes for this movie and will keep my fingers crossed that the look of the film will remain true to Carson Ellis’ beautiful illustrations. She has such a distinctive and unique style!
