Apparently Bill Mechanic doesn’t mind putting a bit of himself in the movies he produces.

Just check out “Coraline,” the inventive animated 3-D film the Detroit native and Michigan State grad produced that debuted theaters on Friday.

Based on a book by British writer Neil Gaiman, “Coraline” was destined for some Americanization.

So suddenly the lead character, a little girl who has just moved to Oregon, was from Pontiac. And her favorite place in the whole world was the Detroit Zoo. And her father was wearing a college sweatshirt with the word Michigan on it.

I am glad to see something with the word Detroit, and the Detroit Zoo being used in good light!
