Tim Burton and Seth Grahame-Smith Working on Stop-Motion Feature ‘Night of the Living’

In a semi-melding of Tim Burton‘s next two films — the Seth Grahame-Smith-scripted Dark Shadows and stop-motion Frankeneweenie — an interview with THR has revealed that the director and writer are looking to join forces again on (you’ve guessed correctly) a stop-motion monster film, entitled Night of the Living.

Here’s what Grahame-Smith said about the project:

“When we were shooting Dark Shadows 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 [sic] 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).”

I’m sure this excites a good number of people; being no fan of either, however, leaves me completely, entirely indifferent to where this could go. Frankenweenie might be some creative revitalization for Burton — not that he can necessarily be “revitalized” for yours truly — but another film of that sort with the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies guy at command can’t help out. Expect it to be a huge hit

And, when it comes to that Beetlejuice sequelGrahame-Smith expects the script to go forward “later this year.” Oh, boy.

Do you see any promise in Night of the Living, even if we’re this early out?
