On the heels of an Oscar nomination for his company''s film Coraline, Travis Knight, CEO of Oregon-based animation studio Laika, has unveiled some possibilities for his next project, Oregon Business reports.

Although Knight told the media outlet that the studio''s next film project is in pre-production and could be announced in the coming months, he did not give any details about the premise of the latest movie.

Last year, Knight told the news source his studio was exploring the possibilities of films called Here Be Monsters!, which would follow a 12-year-old boy living underground in nineteenth-century London, and Paranorman, the story of a town whose only hope for salvation lies with a 13-year-old superhero.

Whichever project the studio chooses to pursue, Coraline has proven to be a tough act to follow. In addition to an Oscars nod, the film has already grossed more than $120 million - twice as much as it cost to make over a five-year period.

To ensure its next film is up to par, company officials plan to add hundreds of new employees to its 200-person roster.

Laika''s latest project, a commercial for Tostito''s, aired during the Fiesta Bowl last month, according to the studio''s website.
