Unforseen awesomeness ahead

I haven't been particularly excited about the upcoming film adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Coraline. I enjoyed the book (although I prefer Gaiman's short story The Wolves in the Walls), but I was disappointed by the Teri Hatchter/Dakota Fanning casting—what, were there no British actors available?—and I've always thought that director Henry Selick's The Nightmare Before Christmas was totally overrated. (Sorry, emo readers, but it's true.)

But then I discovered that John Hodgman (!!) is playing Coraline's father, and Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French (!!!!) are playing Miss Forcible and Miss Spink, and the coolness factor of the entire project shot up approximately 10,000%!
