David Cronenberg Moving To Stop-Motion Animation With ‘Foxed’ | Film News



As a director, David Cronenberg has been giving audiences nightmares for decades, starting with his pioneering “body horror” movies of the 70’s and 80’s (most notably the masterpieces Videodrome and his 1986 remake of The Fly), to his more experimental films, including last year’s shockingly funny Maps to the Stars.


Now, he is producing an adaptation of the short film Foxed, a stop-motion animation that makes Coraline look like Teletubbies. The short, directed by James Stewart, has been winning rave reviews and awards at festivals for a couple of years, with Stewart now set to write and direct a full-length, 3D adaptation. You can watch the magnificently creepy short below and wonder if this remake will be suitable for children – and if it is, how many nightmares they should expect to have.
