Neil Gaiman got to chatting with the boys at Sci Fi Wire about the recently announced choice of director for his latest acclaimed novel, The Graveyard Book, Neil Jordan. From the sounds of it this book is going to be in very good hands when it comes to getting on screen the way its creator wishes.
“I felt like we were all talking about the same movie,” Gaiman told the site. “The stuff that he is responding to, the stuff that he wants to do, is all the stuff that’s in the book and is in [the movie] that I’d like to see.”
The two are working together a lot on the film version, the title of which I’m sure will change eventually, and I’m sure he’ll keep his loyal readers informed of its progress. He’s good like that.
He also told a rather depressing story about a possible Sandman adaptation that never came to fruition, but I won’t reprint it all here; just follow the link above to give it a read and if you’re a Sandman fan, get your disappointed head shaking ready.
