Dakota Fanning To Voice Lead 'Coraline'

Dakota Fanning has signed on to voice the title character in the animated feature Coraline, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) is writing and directing the film, based on the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman. The story centers on a young girl (Fanning) who discovers an alternate version of her life after walking through a secret door in her new home. On the surface, this parallel reality is similar to her real life, only much better. The adventure turns dangerous, however, when the girl's counterfeit parents try to keep her forever.
