Animation studio Laika is set to produce a new original live-action film titled Crumble with producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie, Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse).

The script for the film comes from Brian Duffield (Spontaneous, No One Will Save You), who is also set to direct the movie.

The film tells the story of “a married couple who embark on a world-traveling adventure to find a cure for an ancient curse.” That’s all we know about the story, but it sounds like it could make for a great adventure film.

Duffield said in a statement: “I’ll never forget seeing Coraline on opening night at the AMC Burbank 16 and wondering who these wonderful new geniuses were.

“I can’t wait to make a movie with them and hopefully live up to their banner, and I couldn’t be more excited to get to go on a new adventure with my friends at Lord Miller.”

Matt Levin, president of live-action film and series at Laika, said in a statement: “We’re so excited to partner with Brian and the entire team at Lord Miller on this special film.

“Brian has such a singular voice, and Crumble perfectly embodies the bold, emotional, and inventive storytelling that we champion at Laika.

“Lord Miller is in a class of its own, and we could not ask for a better creative team to bring this story to life.”

Laika is behind films such as Coraline, Paranorman, and Kubo and the Two Strings, and they are looking to get in the live-action game. This expansion already includes an upcoming adaptation of the action thriller novel Seventeen by John Brownlow.
