Animation Studio Laika Steps Into Live-Action Film With Brian Duffield’s Crumble


The animation studio Laika—creators of Coraline and the upcoming, much-anticipated Piranesi—is trying something new. Deadline reports that the Oregon-based studio is producing Crumble, a live-action film from writer-director Brian Duffield (No One Will Save You, pictured above).

This news comes three years after Laika’s announcement that it planned to begin making live-action films alongside its lauded animated features. At the time, it was announced that the studio would produce a live-action adaptation of the novel Seventeen by John Brownlow; it’s unclear what the state of that film might be.

Crumble will be produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the Oscar-winning producers of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. As for the film’s story, Deadline says only, “Crumble tells the tale of a married couple who go on a world-traversing adventure in the hope of finding a cure to an ancient curse.”

Writer-director Duffield had a streaming hit with the horror film No One Will Save You, which premiered on Hulu last year. He also created Netflix’s animated Skull Island series, and recently signed on to direct and co-write an adaptation of Daniel Kraus’s novel Whalefall.

No casting or production timeline has been announced for Crumble. icon-paragraph-end
