Clive Barker and Guillermo del Toro are getting ready to explore the dark side of Claymation.

Twitch reports that the duo will be co-producing Born, a film adaptation of Barker’s story about a family who gets more than they bargained for when they move to the English countryside. Dan Simpson, who adapted the source material, is directing; Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany have signed on to star. The official synopsis follows:

A young couple. A quaint English village. A deadly secret.

This is the world of Born. Combining elements of The Sixth Sense, The Wicker Man, Rosemary’s Baby, and Straw Dogs, Born tells the story of a couple who thought they had found the perfect place to start a family and pursue their professional dreams, only to find themselves caught in a terrifying supernatural plot.

Joe and Vanessa thought they had everything. They’ve settled in an idyllic English town that will be perfect for both raising their unborn child and for Joe to build his dream Claymation workshop. From the local hospitality to the rich red molding clay found in the town quarry, it would seem they’ve settled in paradise. But something isn’t quite right. The locals are almost too friendly, and while using the clay Joe begins to have eerie visions of a young girl’s murder. Gradually, the story being told in his animation foreshadows the fate of Joe and Vanessa, leading Born to a terrifying conclusion that will shock audiences, leaving them breathless.

Okay, so it doesn’t sound all that scary…but with Barker and del Toro involved, you can bet it will at least be interesting, right?
