Disney to write down $50 million on unnamed film

Disney to write down $50 million on unnamed film

Quote:
LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Walt Disney Co. expects to book a $50 million write-down for the current quarter relating to an untitled, stop-motion animated film that was shut down last month, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. Quoting Disney Chief Financial Officer Jay Rasulo and unnamed sources, the Journal said newly appointed studio chairman Alan Horn made the decision to cut the project, directed by Henry Selick, who also directed the cult hit "Coraline." Rasulo told the Bank of America Merrill Lynch conference in Los Angeles that the write-down would have a "very short" impact on what is Disney's fourth quarter, ending this month

I don't think so. Frozen is a computer animated film, not stop-motion. Frozen is scheduled to be released in November 2013 so it should be at least 50% complete by now.

The only things being said anywhere online is that the project was never titled. Apparently with stop motion they only get a few seconds of usable film per day. So the decision had to be made early. This project was having significant problems and would never make its release dates so they pulled the plug.

Nothing else seems to be known excpt if you have a name for a movie, then that isn't it.

The name of the movie was called: "ShadeMaker". It was described as “the story of two brothers that takes Selick’s special brand of surrealism into a new direction"
