Bradbury's From the Dust Returned Lands at MGMMGM has snapped up screen rights to adapt Ray Bradbury’s From the Dust Returned. Not a lot of details on this one yet, but it has the potential to be one heck of a unique genre experience.

According to Deadline, Bradbury optioned the rights to producers Denise Di Novi (Ed Wood) and Alison Greenspan (Catwoman). The book’s narrative is a vignette approach, revolving around a young boy and the supernatural beings in his family: mummified mother, a daughter who lives vicariously through the creatures she visits in her dreams and a gargoyle-esque uncle. Imagine something of a monstrous family reunion and that’s part of the gist here.

No word on a director yet, but I have a feeling this is going to attract some major talent. I’d love to see someone like Sam Raimi take a crack at the material, but that might be a case of wishful thinking. Stay tuned; this should be pretty interesting.
