Director stakes out animated 'Transylvania' film

“Open Season” helmer Jill Culton has been tapped to direct Sony Pictures Animation’s “Hotel Transylvania.”

Upon discovering that they are natural enemies, the doomed couple attempts to bring peace between monsters and humans. In the end, each family will have some new blood. Writers have not yet been set.

“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” will be SPA’s next project, and “Hotel Transylvania” will follow.
