Pinkava Tells A Little White Lie

New animation from Geri's Game director

Jan Pinkava, the director behind Pixar's Geri's Game and almost the director of Ratatouille, has signed on to direct and write Little White Lie for Laika Entertainment, the mini-studio that brought us the brilliant Coraline. He'll be writing with 2009 'Black List' writer Chris McCoy.

The Black List, in case you've forgotten, is the list of best as-yet unproduced screenplays, and in 2009 included McCoy's Good Looking, a sci-fi tale about a future where a computer chooses your perfect match - only for one man to reject the computer's choice.

We're giving you those details because we don't have any on Little White Lie itself, except that it's based on an original idea by Pinkava. Let's hope it turns out as brilliant as Geri's Game (or brillianter) but a good bit longer.
