Sony Pictures Animation has given Jill Culton the job of directing their upcoming movie Hotel Transylvania.

The story tells of Simon Van Helsing, the descendent of a long line of monster hunters. He falls in love with Dracula's daughter, Mavis, without knowing she's the offspring of his sworn enemy. Together they try to bring about peaces between monsters and humans.
