coraline.jpgBecause every other eleven year old girl in Hollywood is, apparently, completely uncastable, potential extraterrestial Dakota Fanning has been hired to do voice work on Henry Selick's Coraline. Based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name, Coraline tracks a young girl's adventures in a parallel reality. The fake world resembles a really great version her real world – really great, that is, until her fake parents try to keep her from returning to her real ones. Selick, of course, directed The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach; Fanning has been in every movie released this year.
