Animation Ahead for Lemony Snicket Series?

Brad Silberling, director of the 2004 feature Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, has hinted to MTV that a stop-motion animation sequel is possible.

Based on the popular series of children’s books, A Series of Unfortunate Events starred Jim Carrey and grossed a respectable $118 million domestically and more than $200 million worldwide.

But squabbling between partner studios Paramount and DreamWorks put the kibosh on any sequel plans until now, according to MTV’s Movies Blog.

With the children who played the orphans in the first film having aged too much to reprise their roles, Silberling says he’s exploring the idea of doing additional films, each in a different medium.

The second film would be done with stop-motion animation, which got a boost from the success of Coraline, though Silberling would not say what he would do with a third film.
