9 the movie is adapted from the short film of the same name and is being produced by Tim Burton, Timur Bekmambetov, and Jim Lemley
The plot revolves around a “rag doll” character that fights a monster that has stolen the rest of his people’s souls. The characters and sets are mostly comprised of every-day objects. The monster itself is also a pieced-together affair. Its torso is clothed in a stitched-together skin made from the burlap hides of its ragdoll victims. The head is an animal skull (possibly a cat’s) with a lightbulb in one eye socket. Its limbs are metal and jointed by hinges, and its feet are twisted forks
9 is scheduled for release on September 9, 2009.
