DreamWorks is preparing to get creepy, tossing aside ogres, fairy tales, aliens and dragons for a story about an ominous toy store and a little girl who gets sucked in by a rather familiar-looking doll. The premise alone makes this project interesting, but to up the ante it's coming to us from producer Guillermo del Toro and Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas.
Turning the clocks back a year: While hard at work on Pixar movies like 'Up,' animator Rodrigo Blaas decided to write and direct his own short called 'Alma.' This small passion project soon become more than just a nice hobby for Blaas. The short began winning awards like Best Animation at the L.A. Shorts Festival, and reeked of feature potential.
