While Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War) are crafting Avengers: Infinity War for release next year, the siblings have attached themselves to a new horror fantasy project with A Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline director Henry Selick.

This new creative venture will adapt the spooky adventure game Little Nightmares into a TV series aimed at young adults. Developed and released by Tarsier Studios and Bandai Namco Entertainment, Little Nightmares follows the weird adventures of a little yellow raincoat-wearing girl name Six as she ventures into a strange underwater netherworld called The Maw.

Here's the official game synopsis:

Little Nightmares presents a grim shadow-filled adventure through an interactive storyline, outstanding sound design, and a unique art-style that is sure to deliver eerie chills and goosebumps. Players will discover that Little Nightmares blurs the lines between dreams and nightmares as they explore The Maw in an effort to escape its nightmarish confines.

No word on whether this will be CGI or stop-motion animated, but Selick is signed on for the pilot and potentially some of the episodes. Little Nightmares landed this past April for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Check out the game trailer below and tell us if you almost hear the whimsical strains of a Danny Elfman score accompanying it.
