First casting word on animated zombie film

The Road‘s Kodi Smith-McPhee dropped some news on us this afternoon regarding his next genre effort.

“I’m doing an animated film next called Paranorman,” the young actor revealed to Shock Till You Drop while discussing this week’s release Let Me In, which he stars in. “I play a boy named Norman who can see ghosts and he saves the world from a zombie invasion.”

Paranorman, announced earlier this year and tentatively due out in 2013, is being written and directed by former storyboard artist Chris Butler. Laika Entertainment will produce – they previously shepherded Coraline and The Corpse Bride.
