But STYD did ask him about the adaptation of the Christopher Golden/Mike Mignola-penned novel “>Baltimore, or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire (book review), which Goyer’s been attached to direct since the project was announced.
“The book is not an easy adaptation and the draft – and I think [Mignola and Golden] would be the first to admit this – is very literary,” Goyer told the site. “So now we’re going to do a re-write with them. We’ll see. It’s still very early on and it’s a cool project, a quirky project. I was surprised when I got involved because when we took it out to studios, I thought it would be a hard sell. But there was lot of people interested in it.”
I’m glad to hear that he’s still passionate about getting this one made; the book is probably one of the best I read last year and to see come to the screen, done right of course, it could easily have the makings of classic. Stay tuned for more updates!
