While discussing his filmmaking technique behind Gainsbourg for next week’s Reject Radio, graphic novelist and writer/director Joann Sfar said he was working with John Carls (producer of Rango and Where the Wild Things Are) to produce an animated film called Little Vampire – modeled after his “Little Vampire Goes to School.” In the film, a young vampire who lives with older monsters, and longs for the company of youth. He finds it in a human boy named Michel, whom he befriends. According to Variety, Sfar has likened the tone to a blend between Roger Corman horror and the “Peanuts” comic strip. Which is awesome. When I asked if it would be like his last graphic novel adaptation, The Rabbi’s Cat, he said, “that was made and released in France, and it’s a low budget, 2D animated movie, but Little Vampire will be big. Little Vampire will be the usual standard of animation. We’re finishing the script right now, and I expect it to be very funny.” Sfar will be writing and directing the film, breathing animated life into a bookbound character. No word yet on a possible release date or when the film will go into production.
