The Shadow King created by Henry Selick, the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas, James And The Giant Peach and the Oscar® and BAFTA nominated Coraline, is moving forward with Academy Award nominated producer Josh Penn (Beasts Of The Southern Wild) and K5 International on the project, which until recently was in hiatus after Disney exited.

Written and directed by Selick, his team on The Shadow King includes Director of Photographer Peter Sorg; Eric Leighton, Animation Director on Legend Of The Guardians; Production Designer Lou Romano (The Incredibles); Editor Wyatt Jones (Immortals, Rango, TRON: Legacy, Zodiac); and composer Bruno Coulais (Coraline).

Already well into production, Henry Selick will attend The European Film Market where K5 International will present exclusive clips from The Shadow King to selected buyers at Private Screenings.

Henry Selick stated: "K5 is the perfect presenter for The Shadow King – they appreciate the film's exciting blend of the fantastic and personal with its mix of humor, scares, and moments of sweetness. We can't wait to get back into production."

K5's Co-Founders Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur commented: "We immediately realized that The Shadow King is a fantastic and exciting prospect that needed to find the support. To offer our help to Henry's brilliance as a storyteller is an absolute pleasure for us." "And it also demonstrates K5's commitment to bringing bigger and bolder projects to the market," adds Partner Sales Carl Clifton. "Henry Selick is the best in the business. His films are all instant classics and they delight family audiences all over the world over and over again."

The Shadow King is a magical tale about nine-year-old New York orphan Hap who hides his fantastically weird hands with long fingers from a cruel world. But when a living shadow girl teaches him to make amazing hand shadows that come to life, his hands become incredible weapons in a shadow war against a ravenous monster bent on killing Hap's brother Richard and ultimately destroying New York.
