Strike ‘9’

Posted by · 1:24 pm · June 4th, 2008

I just caught wind that Focus Features’ animated endeavor “9” from writer/director Shane Acker (and based on his Academy Award-nominated short film) has been slated for 2009, removing it from the already thin slate of contenders in the animated feature category. Apparently, this has always been the case, so I’ve either been out to lunch, going on bad information or both. It happens.

The studio still, presumably, has a horse in the race with Henry Selick’s Neil Gaiman adaptation “Coraline,” should it maintain a platform release pattern that puts in in U.S. cinemas by the end of the year. We’ll see.

    This is very sad news. I had hopes for “9”. Do you know if it’s going to be a January release (god, I hope not), or have they figured out the alternate release date yet?
