The plot for the project is being kept under wraps.
The writer recently had this to say about the project:
"Night of the Living is an idea I have had around for years that I'm doing with Tim Burton. When we were shooting Dark Shadows last year I worked up the nerve to tell Tim about it because I always thought it would make a good movie. When I saw what he had done with Frankweenie and Corpse Bride, it always struck me as a great idea for that form. I'm writing it at Warner's Bros. for him (as a stop-motion monster movie)"
The writer most recently wrote Dark Shadows for the director.
This project is still in early development.
