Two writers ready to tell 'Little White Lie'
Chris McCoy, Jan Pinkava to pen animated film for Laika Ent.
Chris McCoy and Jan Pinkava are writing the animated film "Little White Lie" for Laika Entertainment, the company behind the Oscar-nominated "Coraline."
"Lie" stems from an original idea by Pinkava, who has a story credit on Pixar's "Ratatouille," which he co-directed. Pinkava also will direct "White Lie."
Mary Sandell is overseeing for Laika.
McCoy, repped by CAA and manager Shawn Simon, has two comedies set up with producers Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg at DreamWorks: "Good Looking" and an untitled college-set comedy.
Pinkava, who won an Oscar for the animated short film "Geri's Game" in 1997, also has worked on the Pixar movies "Monsters, Inc.," "Toy Story 2" and "A Bug's Life."
Laika has an adaptation of Alan Snow's "Here Be Monsters!" in development along with the original feature "Paranorman," about a 13-year-old protecting his small town from a zombie attack.
"Coraline," which was written and directed by Henry Selick, has grossed $121 million worldwide.
