The Graveyard Book
Originally Disney’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman's acclaimed 2008 kids' novel The Graveyard Book was being developed as a stop-motion project to be directed by Henry Selick. Unfortunately that didn't pan out, but there's still life in the old tombstone garden!
Neil Gaiman is definitely one of the more popular writers among the Dread Central crew so, even though the story might be geared toward the younger crowd, we're all still pretty stoked to hear that his Newberry Medal-winning The Graveyard Book is heading to the big screen.
Good news, horror heads. Chris Columbus' 1492 Pictures and Korean shingle CJ Entertainment are moving forward with three horror films this year, two of which are sporting some very familiar genre names.
It's been about a year and a half since we've heard anything about the possible big screen adaptation of Neil Gaimin's #1 best seller The Graveyard Book, but finally the man himself has given a status update.
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.
Back in October it was announced that Neil Gaiman’s Graveyard Book, which recently took home the John Newbury Medal for year’s most outstanding contribution to children’s literature, would be headed to the big screen. At the time few details were known other than the fact that the UK effects house Framestore had the rights, but today an exciting bit has been added.
Neil Gaiman’s latest novel, The Graveyard Book, just hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller’s list, and Gaiman couldn’t be happier about it. He recently chatted up the folks at MTV to talk all things scary and revealed that a movie version is already in the works.
